“There’s daggers in men’s smiles. The near in blood, The nearer bloody.”

This political drama centers around a royal couple who spiral into a ruthless quest for power after given a series of prophecies by a coven of witches. Macbeth, a soldier, not a political leader, becomes obsessed with the witches’ predictions and drunk on the powerful influence of his equally driven wife.

Considered among William Shakespeare’s greatest works, and laden with some of the most iconic characters and language in his canon, Macbeth continues to resonate with modern audiences by exploring the ramifications of power hungry, unqualified leaders, who make deeply flawed choices and ignite civil unrest and violence. Unchecked hubris, lust, and paranoia lead to terrible loss, bloodshed, and horror.

Macbeth, a brave Scottish general, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. 
Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. 
He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. 
The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death. – Wikipedia
