Macbeth turns in his grave. Yet another group is performing Shakespeare’s play again and his ears are ringing. The bard’s text has earned him a bad reputation that he doesn’t deserve, poor thing.
And misery loves company. He’s keeping Lady Macbeth awake, and she doesn’t know how to convince him that fame, whether it’s good or bad, just doesn’t matter. But Macbeth needs more than that before he can rest in eternal peace. Macbeth needs revenge! Problem is, how does one get revenge on a playwright that’s been dead for 400 years?
