Originally directed by Nigel Charnock for Volcano in 1999, MACBETH | DIRECTOR’S CUT is a furious two-hander has been remade for 2016 and beyond.
It takes the bloodiest and most intense of Shakespeare’s plays and strips it bare of its regal cushioning, evoking the tawdry domestic world of contemporary serial killers in an erotic and violent theatrical assault on the senses. Lyrical, apocalyptic, extreme and dangerous.
