Macbeth by William Shakespeare
in a modern verse translation by Migdalia Cruz

Directed by L. Peter Callender

An evil prophecy to be king drives Macbeth and his wife to make the vision a reality. A tortuous series of events escalates into one of the most notorious good man driven bad stories. This Macbeth is a modern translated version created by Migdalia Cruz.
