Does anyone know a quick short really good summary of the story of Macbeth? Its for my theatre programme I'm doing. I also do a short bit about all 5 acts and the descriptions I've looked at on the internet are too long. Does anyone know a short quick way to describe 5 Acts still leaving some twists to the story of Macbeth?
it would be good if the descriptions of th 5 Acts were 3, 4 or 5 ssentences to make the play sound interesting
I assumed you've tried Sparknotes and other such sites. Those are the shortest summaries I know of. You'll probably need to make your own summaries of these summaries.
You kill someone and overreact and start killing a lot of people you fear, you get really delusionaly paranoid, and your wife imagines blood that wont wash off her hands,she kils herself, you go crazy, start seeing ghosts, so you kill the family of the ghost, who finally cuts off your head.
You could add three witches doing some weird chants on the side.
Good site for overviews.
