Macbeth by William Shakespeare
The Mint Theater Space, New York City
This bloody, unrelenting drama, Shakespeare's most popular play, which looks so deeply at the tortured human psyche, is set against the backdrop of a dangerous, sinister underworld, where power, money and suspicion are all mixed in a boiling pot with lust, vice and murder.
This nihilistic tale tells of one ex-soldier's violent rise to power through the ranks of a mercenary army. Twisted by fate and a power-hungry spouse, he shows us the ravaging and tangible effects of fear, the destructive impact of our own nature's dark forces through senseless, unjustified killing.
