Lady Macbeth



In 19th Century England, after being sold into a loveless marriage, a woman starts a passionate affair with a man who works on her husband's estate.

Is the young bride driven by desperation of her situation or a more malevolent type of instability? The audience is allowed to imagine the motivations of the protagonist in this exquisitely crafted, tragic melodrama. Perhaps it's true that rebellion is possible when freedom is not. Lighting, silence and space are used to create a sense of artistic starkness that perfectly serves the oppressive tone and emotional cruelty of the story. What's done is done.
