William Shakespeare's darkest masterpiece, 'Macbeth' portrays a Scotland torn apart by war, greed and ambition. Duncan is weak, and trapped in an unwanted war he seems destined to lose. His court festers with false loyalty, and everywhere he turns he sees dissent and destruction. The only hope for the salvation of his kingdom lies with two generals, Macbeth and Banquo, but their victory comes at a cost. Having defeated the enemy without, they must learn to cope with the enemy within. 'Oftentimes to win us to our harms the instruments of darkness tell us truths'. Performed in the state-of-the-art Christ's College Yusuf Hamied Theatre, this production charts just how far one man may fall. Let the nightmare begin. WARNING - CONTAINS SOME SCENES OF GRAPHIC HORROR.
