Macbeth is cursed—or so say superstitious theater companies that avoid performing what they call, in hushed whispers, The Scottish Play. Those brave enough to try their luck, however, unleash a bloody, whirling dervish of a tale. When the titular general encounters three witches, they let loose with a stunning prophecy: he’s destined to rule. On hearing the news, Lady Macbeth isn’t content to simply wait for the crown. Instead, she spurs her husband to action and sets in motion a series of events that will cover both their hands in blood, cloud their minds with guilt, and make all their future dinner parties really, really awkward. Although the prophecies come true, the question remains: without them, would Macbeth have become king at all?
Romeo and Juliet
Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
So opens Romeo and Juliet, perhaps Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy and a timeless warning to grudge-bearing elders and impetuous youth alike. The Capulets and the Montagues have been battling for generations, but a chance encounter and instant connection between their scions, Romeo and Juliet, leads to reconciliation under the most tragic circumstances possible. After the famous balcony scene, an unforgettable vignette that descends into an argument about the meaning of the word “wherefore,” the lovers struggle against the fate their families have drawn for them, only to fall victim to their adolescent temerity.
