CO-PRESENTED WITH THE PEOPLE’S SHAKESPEARE PROJECT Macbeth, “full of sound and fury,” is one of the most iconic of Shakespeare’s tragedies. It is the story of a husband and wife craving the power of the throne and willing to go down some very dark and lonely roads to maintain that power. It is a story filled with magic, greed, treason, guilt and eventual madness, with some of the most glorious poetry ever written.
