Macbeth is a classic tragedy filled with blood, witches, kings, wars, murder and betrayal. Actors and other theatre people often consider Macbeth to be 'unlucky', and usually refer to it superstitiously as The Scottish Play rather than by name. The characters are sometimes referred to as Mackers and Lady Mackers.
