“a brilliant, terrifying show” that leaves people “gasping in the dark.”
– Chicago Tribune
Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino’s chilling production of Macbeth stars Ian Lake (Final Destiny, Bitten) and Krystin Pellerin (The Tudors, The Real Thing) in a production that will haunt your dreams and leave you tingling.
Returning from victory on the battlefield where they have helped crush a rebellion against King Duncan of Scotland, the warriors Macbeth and Banquo are accosted by three mysterious women. These weird sisters greet Macbeth as Thane of Cawdor – a title belonging to one of the vanquished rebels – and predict he will subsequently become king. When Duncan quickly rewards Macbeth with the executed Cawdor’s title, Macbeth – with the encouragement of his ambitious wife – begins to contemplate fulfilling the second part of the sisters’ prophecy by taking his destiny into his own murderous hands.
