Macbeth - The BBC Shakespeare Collection DVD - NEW & SEALED
"Methought I heard a voice cry 'Sleep no more! Macbeth doth murder sleep'."
Starring Tony Doyle and Nicol Williamson...
Shakespeare's dark tragedy tells of ambition and guilt amidst a background of regicide, violence and the supernatural. When a trio of witches tells returning hero warrior Macbeth that he is fated to become King of Scotland, he attempts to forge his own destiny. Aided and encouraged by his wife, he embarks on a guilt-ridden reign of terror.
Nicol Williamson (Macbeth) and Jane Lapotaire (Lady Macbeth), both renowned Shakespearian actors, bring a tension and mood to the play rarely seen outside of major theatrical events. Their performances bear testament as to why Macbeth remains one of Shakespeare's most popular plays and this production has brought its magic to millions.
