On an autumn afternoon, in an empty lot outside the city, seven girls meet up to do a play. The girls are witches, ghosts, and kings. They hurl headlong into the unchecked passions of Macbeth—in Shakespeare’s original text—as the line between real life and blood fantasy quickly blurs. Through prophecies and smartphones, unexpected circumstances emerge from Shakespeare’s dark nightmare of ambition gone awry.
