About The Play

  
Shakespeare Demystified: MACBETH features five actors, stretched across more than 20 roles. Utilising a minimal set, uncomplicated lighting and live music, the production focuses on the actors’ skills and the audience's imaginative interaction to enliven Shakespeare’s words.

The story: Macbeth, a valiant and honourable Scottish general, receives a prophecy from three “weird sisters” that he will be the next King of Scotland. Apprehensive at first, he eventually succumbs to his wife’s persuasion as well as his own ambition, and becomes king. Holding on tightly to the crown, he destroys his kingdom.

Macbeth is among the four great Shakespeare tragedies. It brings together elements like black magic, murders and political intringue; it dramatises the battle between the good and evil in the human heart. It also highlights the danger of seeking power for power’s sake.
