Macbeth, written by Shakespeare and adapted by Paul B. Crook, tells of the conniving Macbeth and his wife who rise to power through the use of deception and murder. The story takes place after Hurricane Katrina in a post-apocalyptic environment, and the history, heritage, and supernatural aspects of New Orleans are demonstrated by the three witches who steer the events of the play. The witches are Voodoo Queens who use their power to corrupt and maneuver the characters with their dark magic, sensuality, and ability to change forms. MacDuff seeks to bring order, but many are cut down in Macbeth’s quest for power including King Duncan, his seemingly trustworthy companion Banquo, and even MacDuff’s wife and child. Will good rise above evil in the corrupted Big Easy, or will the Voodoo witches have their way?
