the most evil, bloddy, cursed and short plays ever written by Shakespeare. In the story, Lord MacBeth meets up with three witches who say he's going to be king of scotland. MacBeth decides to speed the process up a bit and kills the king of Scotland, King Duncan. As king he starts killing off anyone he fears until Duncan's son, Malcolm, and lord MacDuff form in army in England to overthrow MacBeth. In the end Malcolm becomes king, MacBeth's wife goes insane and kills herself and McDuff shows up on stage with MacBeth's head. The big thing is that the play is cursed and it's bad luck to say it in a theatre. Those who believe in the curse refer to it as "The Scottish Play".
All hail MacBeth, king of Scotland!

A play that is rumored in the theatre community to be cursed. No not ever say the name of this play in a theatre when not doing this play. Bad things happen.

This play is often referred to as the "M-word" or "The Scottish play", "The Unmentionable" or simply, "That play", if it is necessary to make reference to it.

Anyone who utters the word must step out of the dressing room, spin around three times, spit, and recite the line "fair thoughts and happy hours attend you" (from The Merchant of Venice) and beg on their knees to be let back in.
Shannon: Hey Jake! Guess what? Macbeth!
Jake: No!!! You can't say that word!
Shannon: Hahaha! It is so fun to mess with you. Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth!
*set colapses*
Shannon: oh, shit.
Jake: Told you so...
Shannon: Shut up.

Actually, Macbeth became the King of Scotland, not England.

Macbeth is stupid. William Shakespeare is dead. Middle English is dead. So WHY are we still reading his works?
"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
