Written around 1605, (the same time as the Gunpowder Treason) William Shakespeare’s Macbeth is one of his most popular plays. The problem lies in the fact that the play is cursed. Actors will never utter the name Macbeth in a theater or anywhere, for that matter, for fear of invoking the curse. Many productions of Macbeth have been disrupted by this supposed curse and it has caused everything from accidents to death over the years. With a little bit of bitterness, sweetness, and smokiness, this is my tribute to that play.
