Where ever and whenever Macbeth is played in Shoreditch’s Gemini Theatre at Commercial street, people die like some evil cast has been spelled. Numerous incidents have created a superstition among the people in the theatre that playing Macbeth may claim more lives.
On March 23rd, Macbeth is planned and during the playtime a female artiste, Nikki is found lifeless backstage. Neil Hilton, the play director immediately informs the police, and thus the Detective Office Robson and his Sergeant Zahra take up the case.
Before the police arrive, Jimmy, Nikki’s love realizes that she is not dead. She is then sent to the hospital. When Robson arrives, they make an official inquiry with all the actors and stage personnel present there and come to know the Macbeth Superstition.
