Three witches decide to confront the great Scottish general Macbeth on his victorious return from a war between Scotland and Norway. The Scottish king, Duncan, decides that he will confer the title of the traitorous Cawdor on the heroic Macbeth. Macbeth, and another General called Banquo, happen upon the three witches. The witches predict that he will one day become king. He decides that he will murder Duncan. Macbeth's wife agrees to his plan. He then murders Duncan assisted by his wife who smears the blood of Duncan on the daggers of the sleeping guards. A nobleman called Macduff discovers the body. Macbeth kills the guards insisting that their daggers smeared with Duncan's blood are proof that they committed the murder. The crown passes to Macbeth.The bloodied ghost of Banquo appears to Macbeth and Lady Macbeth's conscience begins to torture her as they descend into slow madness...
Macbeth's tale is a despairing complaint about life: "it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." But Paper Wing takes it up a notch...daring to tell the tale of this bloody masterpiece with a fresh and unique interpretation.
Macbeth is Shakespeare's profound and mature vision of evil. It is a play of contradiction and ambition. It is a play depicting destruction, wrestling with creation and a study of the disintegration and damnation of a man. And yet Macbeth is a tragic hero. Therein lies Shakespeare's art, evolving from a deep understanding of the complexity of human nature.
