With Macbeth Shakespeare explores the way the morals of a political leader affect his entire country. This production is set in a fictional Scotland of 2004; the Witches are spin-doctors, and any political action is immediately televised, exploited in tabloids, and broadcast over the Internet. Caught between what he knows to be morally wrong and a limitless craving for power, Macbeth spirals into a frenzy of murder and destruction, all of which is hungrily publicized. Ghost Light Theatrical’s second production examines the ruination of the Macbeths and their kingdom through a lethal combination of ambition and fate.
