Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble …

Loyal military commander Macbeth is consumed with ambition after three mysterious figures tell him he will become King of Scotland. Urged on by his ruthless wife, he embarks on a bloody course to achieve his aim. But the prophecy is not all that it seems...

Shakespeare's tragedy explores the way a single act of treachery enmeshes the couple in a web of murder, deceit and ultimate regret.

With live music and spectacular stage effects, the Abbey Shakespeare Players' 32nd annual production will make the most of the atmospheric backdrop of the St Dogmaels Abbey ruins.
