23rd April 2012: Over 400 years after it was first written and performed, William Shakespeare’s tale of ambition, political intrigue, murder and remorse remains as relevant as ever. Many people are familiar with the tale of the ambitious Scots nobleman who goes on a murderous rampage following a prophecy of power from three mysterious witches only to discover that you should be careful what you wish for.

Adapted for a contemporary audience and presented by an ensemble cast of DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama First Year Drama Students from the BA in Drama (Performance), this production highlights the continuing relevance of this masterpiece.

Director Mary Moynihan, Artistic Director and Theatre Consultant for Smashing Times Theatre Company and a full-time lecturer at the Conservatory, offers a new take on the timeless tale, whilst retaining the compelling qualities that make this story so engaging.
