Ruthless ambition gives way to murder in Macbeth, Shakespeare’s always-relevant examination of the lacerating effect of the reckless desire for power. This poisonous cocktail of ambition, guilt, and paranoia, with subtle seasonings of the supernatural, explores fascinatingly conflicted characters with the velocity of a riveting thriller. Intense, disturbing, and, ultimately, profoundly moving, Macbeth is one of the playwright’s greatest dramatic achievements.

But with his ascension comes a steep price. With vengeful rivals threatening to strip everything away, Macbeth’s tormented conscience leads him into a downward spiral of madness and self-destruction.
