"Something wicked this way comes"

The production concept for Macbeth was "nightmare of blood". For this show I used a great deal of red lighting, to signify the endless string of murders and the countless fighting.

During Macbeth's soliloqies, I used a thorn gobo that rotated methodically counter-clockwise and a deep orange. The idea was that the soliloqies were a look into Macbeth's mind's eye.

The gobos on the witches also rotated, to add to the supernatural element of their presence.
