"The Most Powerful, chilling, evil - feeling Macbeth since McKellen and Dench"
Shakespeare's Macbeth explores the darkest depths of human aspiration. Driven by an insatiable hunger for power, posterity and certainty, Macbeth and his wife commit a murder and set in motion the inevitable unraveling of their own humanity.
As the tragedy unfolds and the horrors increase, Macbeth descends into a solitary hell of his own making, powerless, childless and hopeless.
