About

An earthy, radical reimagining of Shakespeare's Macbeth set during Mexico's War of Independence in the early 19th Century. General Mendoza is returning to camp when he stumbles across an old witch who prophesises that he will come to lead the army. Convinced into action by his wife, he begins a chain of grisly murders that will come to seem endless.

Inspired by Juan Rulfo and Elena Garro and deeply connected to the Mexican soil, this thrilling fast-paced and blood-soaked ensemble production exposes Mexico's downward spiral into the gruesome violence that exploded into the world's consciousness with the massacre of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa.

Presented in Spanish with English surtitles.
