Set in the indulgent "Me Generation" of 1980's Wall Street, this harrowing new production of Macbeth dramatizes the damaging effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Supernatural influences stir in the land, spurring Macbeth and his wife to climb a violent ladder to power. Ambition, fear and guilt collide as they struggle to maintain their grasp and dire consequences for their bloody deeds loom ever closer.
