Macbeth, the theatre play, by William Shakespeare

Macbeth is a play about a Scottish noble who returns from battle with his friend Banquo when they are met by three witches. He asks them about his fate (future) and they tell him that Banquo´s children will be kings.

Soon after this Macbeth finds out that the king Duncan will make him Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth sees the witches predictions coming true and tells his wife about the predictions.

Duncan announces that he is going to Macbeth's castle. Lady Macbeth convinces Macbeth that he has to kill Duncan. He does. Duncan's sons flee (go away fom) the country believing they will be killed next and Macbeth becomes king.

Macbeth remembers the witches prediction to Banquo. He wishes to retain power so he kills Banquo . Macbeth starts to feel guilty and sees Banquo's ghost.

Soon the witches appear again telling Macbeth to beware of Macduff, no man born of a woman will harm Macbeth. Macbeth kills Macduff's family, but Macduff is in England trying to convince Malcolm, Duncan's son to return and take the throne.

Malcolm returns to Scotland. Lady Macbeth sleepwalks and ends up killing herself. Eventually Macbeth and Macduff fight and Macduff reveals that he was "Untimely ripped from his mother's womb" no born. He kills Macbeth and Malcolm becomes king.
