The Rise and Fall of Lord Macbeth
A compact and moderately modernised version of Shakespeare’s well-known tragedy which still retains the character names, symbolic imagery and powerful themes of the original text. The compelling story of the greed and downfall of Macbeth and his ambitious wife is told in full, but also allows room for individual interpretation. Simple to stage, clear and concise, it’s an excellent resource for both literacy work and performance.
