Macbeth – Student Matinee
William Shakespeare’s epic tragedy “Macbeth” comes to Ethington Theater to thrill audiences with a story of royal and bloody dissension that ensues from a ruthless fight for power. Driven by blind political ambition, warrior and antagonist Macbeth rises and falls in a cold-blooded quest toward kingship. This theatrical Shakespearean theatrical drama captures how deceit and murder, without any moral restraint, ends with deadly consequences.
Unbridled Ambition. Corrupted Power. Tragic Downfall.
Macbeth, a brave Scottish general, finds himself in an unmerciful quest for the Scottish throne after receiving a prophecy from three witches that he’s destined to wear the crown. His steadfast desire to become king, along with the persuasion of his manipulative wife, Lady Macbeth, drive him to murder King Duncan. Now a tyrannical ruler, Macbeth becomes wrought with paranoia and guilt over his evil deeds. Securing his kindship consumes him and he desperately uses any means possible to eliminate potential threats to his throne. Fear and guilt also weigh on Lady Macbeth’s conscience as she loses her mind. Among the bloodshed and treachery, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth cannot escape their fatal fates.
