With “The Scottish Play,” The Shakespeare Theatre explores one of the most profound studies of evil ever written. Storms rage, fires burn and night blankets the earth in this tale of sound and fury, which follows the fall of the once-noble Macbeth and his ambitious lady. With writing so poetically rich it is deemed operatic, Macbeth gives us a king with an insatiable lust for power and no chance against fate. Kelly McGillis returns to play Lady Macbeth, a character called “one of the wonders of the dramatic world.”
