In this solo performance, the actor enacts multiple roles―Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, the Witches, the Ghost, etc.―without resorting to costume change. Instead, different vocal skills and physical movement are employed to enable the actor to transform. On a bare stage, a door-frame-like metal structure is used as a forest, a prison, etc., to create various settings and mental landscape.
