Macbeth’s Spinners begins in Eleventh Century Scotland with the supernatural transformation of the three Greek fates, but witchcraft only serves as a cover for their true mission. To thwart their ancient nemesis, the Greek god Apollo, they consolidate their power to help the warlord Macbeth, though Apollo is aware and tries to crush Macbeth in favor of the Northern invaders. But the purpose of the Fates and Macbeth are intertwined, and in the depths of secrecy and devotion the dominant Fate, Clotho, takes Macbeth into realms beyond himself to set him on his true path.
At its heart, Macbeth’s Spinners is a story about love that withstands place and time, while the details of that love are hidden and inescapable. Redemption seeps through the corners of the story and shows an innermost vision to be a trustworthy guide, for love is the ultimate transformation. Haunting and sublime, the story follows the shift of mythic personalities at the most important points of their lives.
