About this show

The Macbeth husbands and the Macduff wives are at the center of Tom Slot's reimagining of Shakespeare's most infamous tragedy, exploring gender bias while preserving the original text.

The days of political correctness have forced a prudish Queen Duncan to employ generals of all genders, races and sexual orientations into her army. Yet these times are still filled with the nepotism and prejudices of the past and General Macbeth struggles to be seen just as competent as his straight counterparts. With the conviction and support of his husband, and the predictions of greatness and power bestowed upon him by a trio of enslaved witches, he goes down a dangerous path of betrayal, greed and murder.
