Macbeth (an undoing)
Author(s): Zinnie Harris, in a new version after Shakespeare
‘Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty! Make thick my blood'
When her husband returns victorious from the battlefield with a prophecy that he is to become King of Scotland, Lady Macbeth will stop at nothing to make their darkest ambitions a reality. The war is over but the battle for the throne has only just begun.
