One night on the heath, the brave and respected general Macbeth encounters three witches who foretell that he will become king of Scotland. At first skeptical, he’s urged on by the ruthless, single-minded ambitions of Lady Macbeth, who suffers none of her husband’s doubt. But seeing the prophecy through to the bloody end leads them both spiraling into paranoia, tyranny, madness, and murder.
In Ubuntu Theater Project's innovative and darkly magical take on William Shakespeare’s Scottish play, three witches cast a spell to influence the fate of a nation — and then embody every character in this epic drama about political ambition, power, and the consequences of violence.
The cast features Ubuntu Artistic Associate Emilie Whelan (Witch, Macbeth and others), Ubuntu Company Member Mia Tagano (Witch, Lady Macbeth and others), and Lauren Spencer (Witch, Macduff and others).
