Macbeth wasn't just the main character in that play you hated, and he wasn't a detective solving crimes with his adorable wee West Highland terrier in the Scottish equivalent of Midsummer either.

The last truly Celtic king of Scotland he suffered a bad press thanks to that pesky William Shakespeare thankfully Mountebank is here to restore the good name of Macbeth!
