Macbeth returns

I do like this Shakespeare play, even if typing the name Macbeth does fill me with a bit of dread.

I did get a bit confused when I read the synopsis as it mentions the hated word. The thing I’m not sure about is using that word in regards to “…what wartime must have been like…“. What exactly does that mean? Instead of swords will they be using lightsabers?

Macbeth Still 2

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of literature’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn Scotland.
