Storyline

Brilliant young general Macbeth pulls off a glorious victory in battle before returning to an indolent court where honours are dispensed by whim. Spurred on by prophesying drifters and an ambitious wife, Macbeth sets his sights on the throne. In Kit Monkman's adventurous new adaptation, this compelling tale of unchecked ambition, soured friendship, lost intimacy and the descent into nihilism is encountered in a strange and claustrophobic territory partly conjured by the mind. Written by GSP Macbeth

The Greater The Vision, The More People Get Left Behind
12 May 2018 | by atomicsweatSee all my reviews

--Fantastical adventurous retelling. Made for the ever changing scope of cinema and the viewers of this millennium, not yesterdays. Some may call it the worst adaption; but one would have to assume that they are the type that believe theater should remain the same as thousands of years ago and never change. If Shakespeare had technology of today I would believe he would create similar shows with great sets and costumes with surreal backdrops and not consider such work as amateur or savage. In other words He would not work out of a textbook for the way that theater was eons ago. The Greater the Vision, the more people get left behind. That is exactly where they should be left, behind.
