Andrew is no stranger to Shakespeare on the Trinity Rep stage. Taking his design to a new level, Macbeth is filled with gorgeous dresses, refined suits, and weird sisters. We find ourselves rooting for Macbeth, played by Mauro Hantman , as he does whatever it takes to gain the power of the throne. King Duncan, played by Timothy Crowe , is dressed geared up in his Godfather suit, red velvet tux and all. Rachael Warren looks stunning as Lady Macduff as she clutches her pearls for dear life.

Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's best-known and most quoteable plays. Set mainly in Scotland it is a tragic examination of the consequences of power and political ambition on the title character and his wife. It has also been reinterpreted across other media including dance, opera and the visual arts. On this page we've gathered together a collection of Macbeth performances and other "honest trifles" from the BBC and our partner organisations.
Personally, I think that the main message that Shakespeare is trying to tell us is that when ambition goes unhindered by moral values, it will corrupt and destroy people and nations. Both were very ambitious and in the end their ambition caused their demise. For instance, when Macbeth first received the prophecies from the witches he immediately thought of murdering Duncan, although his common sense told him that that was not a good idea. Because of this mentality, he became reckless, paranoid, and boastfully insane, making it easier for Malcolm to dispose of him and then claim the throne, and to restore peace and order to Scotland.
