My favourite play… Macbeth

Yes, the tragedy of Macbeth. A classic that remains popular today through it’s combination of ambition, desire, murder, guilt and chaos. Not the nicest of plays, with murders abounding – and a crazed wife who convinces her husband to commit the worst of all sins – but it contains so many home truths.

What would you do to reach your ultimate ambition? Who would you betray and to what lengths would you go to? Which of the deeds in the play was worst, and why? Though written four hundred years ago, the basic principle remains the same – when does ambition cross the line, and what is the price of success?
