As anyone who watches Game of Thrones can tell you, power's not just the ultimate aphrodisiac, it's the ultimate motive for murder. Macbeth is a successful warrior for his king, Duncan, but begins to harbor thoughts of personal advancement. A prophecy delivered by three witches convinces Macbeth he'll be king, and so he mulls over killing Duncan. Lady Macbeth likes the sound of that, and goads her husband into following his dream. But once you get the throne, you have to stay on the throne -- and the surest way to shore up a tottering chair is to prop something under the leg like, say, a couple more bodies. Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's bloodiest, grimmest plays, full of murder and magic and madness. Oh, the madness. The St. Louis Community College-Meramec theater department presents Macbeth at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 17 through 21) at the St. Louis Community College-Meramec theater (11333 Big Bend Road; 314-984-7562). Admission is free.
