The three 'wayward sisters' retell the story of Macbeth, framed through a lens of toxic masculinity, exploring the double-edged act of engaging stories of trauma--the labor and vulnerability, and the potential for healing. Using the source language and new text, this adaptation of Shakespeare is chillingly relevant in our current political climate.
