In Shakespeare's great Tragedy of Blood, we are plunged into the life of a brave soldier who has always been loyal to his king, until he hears the prophecy that he is destined to become king himself. Swayed by his own ambition, convinced by the witches' foreknowledge, shamed by the goading of his wife, Macbeth is convinced that he must commit murder, again and again and again. “Where was this program when I was in highschool?” - Globe Television; “Narrators even have an on-stage role in further explaining the dialogue and plot to the uninitiated, or to those looking for a fresh take on this timeless piece. The ultimate hope is the audience will be tempted to then read Shakespeare's works, . . . with relish.” - Starweek.
