Infamously known as the cursed Scottish play, Macbeth is perhaps Shakespeare’s darkest tragedy. When General Macbeth is foretold by three witches that he will one day be King of Scotland, Lady Macbeth convinces him to get rid of anyone who could stand in his way - including committing regicide. As Macbeth ascends to the throne through bloody murder, he becomes a tyrant consumed by fear and paranoia.

Great version of a true classic
Highly recommend this version of The Scottish Play. A few minor liberties taken compared to the folio version of the text (e.g. "you" substituted for "thou" every once in a while, and references to Seyton clarified here and there), but they all seem to add to the clarity of the narrative without distracting. Voice actors do a great job and sound effects are on point. Finally, it's way better than the free Librivox version. Well worth it!
