About this show

More than just a tale of "vaulting ambition", Mortal Folly's Macbeth is not so much a history as a deeply affecting morality tale, an emotional study of humanity risking everything in the name of love and honor, and gravely suffering the consequences. Harte-DeCoux's adaptation of the Folio takes advantage of Macbeth's relative brevity to add moments of non-verbal storytelling throughout the play, enriching the story with contextual details and giving enlightening new perspective to some of theatre's most well-known and frequently-performed roles. Set in a mythical Dark Age of feudal lords and long swords, Mortal Folly's take on this story of sorrow, blood, and destiny explores the balance between Fate and Free Will, and offers a personal, passionate and cinematic take on one of the Bard's greatest tragedies.
