By William Shakespeare. Directed by Ana Maria Campoy. This taut, pared-down, bilingual adaptation (English/Spanish) tells a tale of murder and dark ambition. Through chance and murder, Macbeth seizes control with the help of his scheming wife and a trio of other-worldly witches. Urged on by eerie prophesies and ambitious desire, the ruthless soul slices through kinsmen, friend, and foe in a bloody climb to power at any cost.
