Emerging bloodied from the battlefield, victorious generals Macbeth and Banquo witness a prophecy of three witches: Macbeth will sit on Scotland’s throne.

A dark seed of ambition has been planted, and with King Duncan feasting under their roof, Macbeth and his wife draw their daggers and take fate into their own hands.  A king is murdered, a crown seized and a vicious spiral of betrayal and bloody violence begins.

Shakespeare’s shortest and most brutal tragedy of superstition and vaulting ambition is a wild ride from power and glory to greed and treachery.  In a ruthless struggle to secure control of a nation, Scotland becomes a battleground where trust, loyalty and truth are only the first victims.

Director Rachel O'Riordan was nominated for a TMA award as Best Director for the Lyric Theatre, Belfast's production of Much Ado About Nothing and won this year’s Critics’ Award for Theatre in Scotland for Best Director for Perth Theatre’s February 2013 production of The Seafarer.

Warning: contains scenes of nudity and violence.
