Told through the eyes of her two chambermaids, THE FALL OF LADY M centers on Lady MacBeth's lust for power, manipulations, rise to position, dissent into madness, and ultimate death.  Relying on all female characters including unique twists on Ladies MacBeth, MacDuff and, of course, the three witches, THE FALL OF LADY M spins a new tale of murder, betrayal, defiance and taking hold of the future, set inside that of the classic story of power, greed and the edge of fantasy.
