This brilliant adaptation of Shakespeare's classic tragedy was produced by Pan Asian Rep in New York to great acclaim. In 13th century Japan, General Macbeth is victorious in battle and awarded the title of Ryoshu of Akita. Almost immediately he is visited by the legendary witches called the Three Yojos. In the thrall of their spell, he is consumed by ruthless ambition. He instigates a plot to become the new Shogun and, with the help and incitement of his wife, begins to slaughter his way to the royal crown and ultimately to meet his doom.
