Welcome note

Macbeth is a space for both individual and class exploration of Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth, within the broader meta themes of the creative processes of writing, of Literary adaptation, of drama, and of the key theme of how one acts/makes decisions in society vis a vis beliefs and values.
