WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Scottish Play - theatrical types consider saying its name to be unlucky! Thrust into power by his overwhelming desires and an over ambitious wife, Macbeth finds his only security is to murder and murder again. From "When shall we three meet again" to "is this a dagger I see before me" this is a powerful Shakespearean drama.

Infinite Space Theatre's Macbeth is set behind the pristine closed doors of the City. Birnam Wood and Dunsinane Hill are two organisations engaged in a hostile takeover. The witches are police and journalists. Macduff is female, pushing for the representation on the Board which women so woefully lack. And Lady Macbeth plays her cards rather differently, using her husband as a vehicle to vault her desire for power. This is still a play about blood, only the way in which it is spilled has been updated and contemporised.
