About this Performance
A Scottish general Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Spurred to action by his wife and the promise of power, he murders King Duncan and takes the throne for himself. Consumed by guilt and paranoia, Macbeth spirals downward on a journey of murder and violence that leaves few unscathed. As the tyrannical ruler rises we see the ripple effects throughout the land. The bloodshed and civil war that follow take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the deepest the realms of madness.
Macbeth ran from April 25th to May 5th of 2019 at the historic HB Playwrights Foundation Theater in New York.
