Macbeth image

In a struggling and divided nation, tearing itself apart, the Macbeths see their chance at the crown – why shouldn’t they take it?
But things don’t go according to plan. Dreams quickly turn to nightmares, humanity erodes, nature stirs. As society strives to make sense of the darkness within it, how long will it take people to fight back against the endless cycle of violence and corruption?
ETT’s visceral and contemporary new production of Shakespeare’s tragedy speaks to today’s world; why has Macbeth haunted our fears and nightmares for centuries, and what lesson is this cautionary tale still urgently trying to teach us?
