MACBETH - Scottsdale Desert Stages Theatre - April 28 - June 4, 2017

by William Shakespeare

Set in medieval Scotland, Shakespeare's tragedy involves elements of the supernatural to tell the tale of Scottish General Macbeth. After three witches tell him of a prophecy that he will one day become King of Scotland, Macbeth decides to take matters into his own hands to make the prediction come true. His wife, Lady Macbeth, spurs him on and together they plot the murder of Duncan, the current King. But things spiral out of control, forcing Macbeth to oversee the murders of those who are threats to his keeping the throne. This killing spree takes its toll on both Macbeth and his wife and they both descend into madness. The beauty of Shakespeare's tale is in its simplicity to effectively show how ambition and deceit ultimately consume them both.
