Macbeth is the tale of one man’s ill-fated journey. After receiving a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland, the heroic General is consumed by ambition and spurred into action by his power-hungry wife. Macbeth fulfils the forecast by killing the King and then taking the throne. However, wracked with guilt and paranoia both he and his murderous wife’s lives slowly unravel, leaving them to suffer their fate. What’s done cannot be undone…
