Macbeth

Alternative title

Synopsis
Video recording of the Kochsnowskiego Theatre from Opole, Poland’s staging of Macbeth. Performed in Polish as part of the Globe to Globe Season.

"Staging raves and binges lighten the nights in Maja Kleczewska’s Dunsinane, in this glitzy production of Macbeth which echoes the films of David Lynch and Pedro Almodovar. Transvestites, addicts and track-suited gangsters wander the corridors and teeter on the brink of sanity". [From company press release].
