The Tragedy of Macbeth

  • Bluestone Church Arts Space 10A Hyde Street Footscray, VIC, 3011 Australia (map)

Ambition, betrayal, love, greed and blood.

A prophecy from a trio of witches foretells Macbeth will one day be Queen. Consumed by ambition and goaded by her husband, Macbeth murders Queen Duncan and takes the throne. The tyrannical reign that follows, filled with guilt and paranoia, results in a bloodbath and civil war, as Macbeth and Lord Macbeth fall deeper into the realms of madness and death.
