Written by William Shakespeare
On a wild and windswept heath a whispered prophecy incites an unstoppable chain of events. The prophecy rouses the dormant ambition of a soldier, Macbeth. His wife, Lady Macbeth, lusts after the title of queen. Together the Macbeth’s plot a ghastly murder, and in doing so throw open the gates to hell.
Morality is put under the microscope in William Shakespeare's brilliant examination of human temptation, ambition and guilt. Macbeth is an exciting story that provokes debate and stimulates discussion.
