“O full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife”
At the heart of Shakespeare’s darkest play is a disintegrating marriage. This new adaptation using a radically cut version of the text focuses on the relationship between one of the most famous killers in literature and his ambitious wife.
Returning from battle, Macbeth hears a prophesy emboldening him to murder and
betray. Compelled by his equally ruthless wife, Macbeth ignores his creeping sense of guilt and hopelessness and attempts to hasten the hand of fate, unwittingly ushering in the downfall of them both.
First performed at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow in 2017, the Citizens’ Artistic Director Dominic Hill’s brutal and intense production tells the Bard’s famous story in a powerfully concentrated 70 minutes.
