MACBETH

by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare's most popular play receives the Roust treatment. An intense, 110 minute, R-rated ride from start to finish, this bloody, unrelenting drama, which looks so deeply at the tortured human psyche, could be a drama miniseries event on HBO.

Set against the backdrop of a dangerous, sinister underworld, where power, money and suspicion are all mixed in a boiling pot with lust, vice and murder; moral lines are blurred, perhaps non-existent. There's a good dose of sex, torture, under-age prostitution and biological manipulation to create more efficient killing machines.

 

This nihilistic tale tells of one ex-soldier's violent rise to power through the ranks of a mercenary army. Twisted by fate and a power-hungry spouse, he shows us the ravaging and tangible effects of fear, the destructive impact of our own nature's dark forces through senseless, unjustified killing.
