Macbeth – Riivatut (The Possessed) after William Shakespeare



This adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic play for puppets and actors addresses today’s youth with its timeless message. By showing how fatal it can be to believe in wrong predictions and false values this production invites young adults to ask themselves how an ordinary man can turn into a monster. A crime cannot be undone, its memory stays and finally destroys the one who committed it.
