The EUTC, in association with the Edinburgh University Shakespeare Company, present what is arguably one of the greatest works in the English literary canon.
Macbeth is a hauntingly compelling tale of ambition achieved through means both murderous and supernatural, and the horrifying consequences to both society and individual of such achievement.
The three weyward sisters prophesy Macbeth’s rise to the Scottish throne, which sparks the evil intent within him. As Macbeth gradually succumbs to his innermost passions and Lady Macbeth’s cruel ambition, society collapses around them.
“Yet do I fear thy nature; It is too full o’ the milk of human kindness.” Act I, Scene V
