Promised a golden future as ruler of Scotland by three sinister
witches, Macbeth murders the king to ensure his ambitions come
true. But he soon learns the meaning of terror – killing once, he
must kill again and again, and the dead return to haunt him. A
story of war, witchcraft and bloodshed, Macbeth also depicts the
relationship between husbands and wives, and the risks they are
prepared to take to achieve their desires.
