Macbeth is a place about a Scottish soldier named Macbeth and his friend Banquo who are met by three strange witches bearing prophetic greetings. Macbeth is told that,among other titles, he will become king(if). The rest of the play follows a once true and loyal soldier as he goes into the depths of darkness and despair as he seeks the crown regardless of the consequences(because of prophetic nonsense).
