What Is the Story of Macbeth?
In this chilling reimagined production of Macbeth, Tony winner Alan Cumming tackles nearly every role in Shakespeare’s iconic fight for the Scottish throne, including Lady Macbeth, Banquo, the three witches and of course, Macbeth. Set in an eerie mental institution, the story is told by a lone psychiatric patient through the use of surveillance cameras, props and an observing doctor and orderly who periodically check in on him. As the drama in Shakespeare’s masterpiece intensifies, the patient slips further into his own madness.
