By William Shakespeare

Directed by C. Julian White

Shakespeare’s haunting tale of ambition and madness is brought to thrilling life in a vigorous and haunting production that lays bare the dark soul of the tragedy. Inspired by mysteriously prophetic witches, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth murderously ascend to the heights of power only for their bloody deeds to cause their fall into chaos and ruin.
