Macbeth rehearsals are progressing well - and so are the technical aspects.

 Synopsis:  This short, well–known Shakespearian tragedy traces – although inaccurately – the rise and fall of an historic medieval Scottish lord as a tribute to Shakespeare’s patron, King James I, who liked short plays, had written a book on witchcraft, and traced his lineage back to another character in the play, Banquo.  The play is a character study of how “power corrupts, and absolute power, corrupts absolutely.”  Filled with bloody battles, usurpation, foul murders, witches’ incantations, and sleepless nights, it tells the haunting downfall of a once worthy, gallant nobleman and his formidable wife, who both, ensnared by evil and equivocation, lose their souls and then their lives while dragging their bleeding, beleaguered country through the corrupted mire with them.
