The vicious, barbaric undercurrent in Shakespeare's most fear filled tragedy erupts in this blood-thirsty production.
Unrivalled on the battlefield, Macbeth is rewarded with rank and favour by a grateful king. But war has left scars. With each enemy Macbeth butchers to serve his own vaulting ambition, his lust for power takes a more menacing grip. Spectres slaughtered on the battlefield drip poison in his ear, and passions erupt as he seizes the throne. But, violence breeds violence, and a reign born in blood spirals out of control as Macbeth's demons return to destroy him.
