Considered to be one of Shakespeare's darkest tragedies, Macbeth is believed to have been written between 1603 and 1607. Macbeth, played by Miles Boucher, is a Scottish nobleman who kills King Duncan of Scotland and rules the country until he is killed in vengeance for his misdeeds. Duncan's murder, and its effects on Macbeth and on Scotland, are the central elements of the play. Conscious of the evil his ambition has given rise to, Macbeth falls prey to the equal resolve of his wife, played by Annie Keris, and the supernatural powers of the Witches who convince Macbeth that he cannot be killed by any mortal, ultimately bringing him to his doom.
