The Macbeth Insurgency

The Macbeth Insurgency

What sparks terrorism? Why do extremists do evil in the name of faith? How far will some go for power?


Shakespeare wrote the murderous Macbeths to ask the same questions about the terrorist plots and religious divisions of his day. And he put history’s most famous upwardly mobile couple into a world of suspicion, secret attacks and double-talk that looks a lot like ours. In the 400th year since his death, this adaptation takes apart Shakespeare and adds contemporary staging, video and movement for a fast-paced thriller that asks old questions in a new way.
