Character Info

Overview

In an imagined Diesel Punk inspired Scotland, culture clashes with power, desire leads to death, and greed carries banners into war.  After battle, three witches spin a prophecy that Scottish General Macbeth will one day become King.  Inspired by his wife, the Macbeths turn prophecy into reality leading to an assassination, coup, and ultimate downfall.  Civil War erupts and characters are thrown into the dangerous waters of freewill versus fate.   With the aesthetics of WWII Europe, this production takes Shakespeare’s classic and puts a 20th century sheet of paint on the cover.
