“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 TudorsThe 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.

 

“A thrilling terror.”

Globe and Mail

 

“A bold and brutal take on the Scottish King’s tragic tale.”

Toronto Star

 

Starring Ian Lake in “a galvanizing performance as an unusually young and sexually magnetic Macbeth.”

The New York Times

 

Krystin Pellerin is “a standout Lady Macbeth … at once adorable yet devious.”
