This one act adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth actually begins in Act Two, Scene II of the original Shakespeare text. Prior to this, in Act One, Macbeth and Banquo, two noble generals in the army of King Duncan of Scotland, have just quelled a rebellion led by Macdonwald and the thane of Cawdor. News of their glorious victory reaches King Duncan before Macbeth and Banquo arrive home. On their return journey, while crossing a Scottish heath, Banquo and Macbeth are met by three witches. The witches hail Macbeth as the “thane of Cawdor, and proclaim who shall be king hereafter.” This prophecy that he will be king, plus the fact that King Duncan has advanced his son Malcolm to the title of the Prince of Cumberland, instill in Macbeth the urge to plot Duncan's death. Macbeth finds an accomplice with even more determination in the form of his wife, Lady Macbeth. Together, they plot King Duncan's murder. The opportunity presents itself when King Duncan and his sons come to visit Macbeth at his castle. The adaptation begins late at night at Macbeth's castle after Duncan and his sons have retired for the evening. Throughout the play, Macbeth is haunted by apparitions and ghosts who foretell his ultimate downfall at the hands of Macduff.
