Storyline

Take one power hungry lesbian couple. Throw in a slow-witted king, a Caribbean sidekick, a trio of flamboyantly gay weird sisters, and a host of other misfits. And what do you have? Macbeth ! Drawing on the tradition of Monty Python and BlackAdder, Macbeth-The Comedy takes us back to a time when men were not necessarily men and ruthless tyrants could also be strict vegetarians.

Truly answers the questions, "What ARE they saying in Shakespeare?"
12 September 2001 | by msambosSee all my reviews

This updated, new/old, gender-bending Macbeth mixes the Bard's lines with LiCalsi's text, giving even the Elizabethan-challenged a line on what's happening in Scotland. And England. And Ireland. Witty in a Monty-Python fashion, this one bears more than one watching to catch all the gags and allusions.
