The Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh presents the world premiere of Macbeth (an undoing), by the theatre’s Associate Artistic Director Zinnie Harris. When her husband returns victorious from the battlefield with a prophecy that he is to become King of Scotland, Lady Macbeth will stop at nothing to make their darkest ambitions a reality. This new take on the Shakespeare classic intertwines with the original text and explores the tension between what has been seen on stage for centuries – the infamous chain reaction resulting from the lust for power – and a fuller realisation of Lady Macbeth’s character and her inner world.
