BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
“Things without all remedy. Should be without regard; what’s done is done.”
The Macbeths are the picture of privileged nobility – happy, successful, going places. Then Macbeth happens upon three witches who predict he will soon be King – a prophecy he distrusts but which his wife becomes utterly seduced by.
Bell Shakespeare’s associate director Peter Evans fulfills a long awaited collaboration with Dan Spielman in the title role and Kate Mulvany who plays his highly erotic wife. This season’s Macbeth reveals what the lure of power can do to a man, and the devastation it can wreak on a marriage and a nation.
