Shakespeare's dark tragedy tells of ambition and guilt amidst a background of regicide, violence and the supernatural. When a trio of witches tells the returning hero warrior Macbeth that he is fated to become King of Scotland, he attempts to forge ... (more)his own destiny. Aided and encouraged by his wife, he embarks on a guilt-ridden reign of terror.
