Tony Award winner Alan Cumming in his riveting solo interpretation of Shakespeare's tragedy.

Star of stage, film, and television Alan Cumming delivers a virtuoso performance playing every role in the National Theatre of Scotland's bold presentation of Shakespeare's chilling tale of desire, ambition, and the supernatural.

This radical reimagining of one of Shakespeare's most deeply psychological plays is set in a psychiatric unit in which Cumming is the lone patient. Channeling the story of Macbeth, he is inhabited in turn by each of the characters of the drama, including some of Shakespeare's most complex and troubled creations.

Cumming's one-man interpretation of Shakespeare's Scottish play comes to audio directly from acclaimed limited stage engagements with the National Theatre of Scotland in Glasgow and at New York's Lincoln Center. Directed for audio by the stage production's renowned directors, this exclusive studio recording of Cumming's dazzling solo performance captures the excitement, passion, and poetry of a wildly original tour-de-force that is destined to become theatrical legend.

    " Read this for school. It was actually pretty interesting, I got what the story was about..more than Rom and Juls. This book has some pretty awesome characters, I think thats what I liked most about it. "

    " Excellent play, wonderfully frightening. Note: I found the notes in this particular edition from the Folger Library not quite up to the standard I've come to expect from the library's other comprehensive editions. I referred to the Bevington to supplement. "

    " One of my favorites plays, probably because I taught it a handful of times. "

    " So good to reread this, one of my favourite Shakespeare plays. It's got it all, intrigue, murder, ambition, the supernatural and most importantly- Lady Macbeth. One of his greatest characters, this play only gets 4 stars because she totally should have had a better death scene. "
