Making a Murderer:

Lady Macbeth


Macbeth is the story of how a once noble soldier murders the king, and then murders someone else to cover that up, and then murders another person to cover up the last murder, and then he murders.... you get the point.

A chain of events unfold after three witches tell Macbeth the prophecy of how he will become king. Macbeth really isn't down with murder in the beginning, but after being pushed by his wife and other supernatural forces he kills and becomes insane.

My story is about his wife, with a twist, and the reason she was so eager to see him kill the king (and the new chain of events that inevitably unfold). My story is also written in a style as close to a traditional Shakespeare play as possible. While I love the traditional story telling method, I wanted to try writing this as a Shakespeare storybook.
