Sig­ni­fy­ing Noth­ing

Where Brisbane - - What’s On -

This is Greg Fleet’s modern take on “Mac­beth”, set in the world of Aus­tralian pol­i­tics. Paul and Lainey Mac­beth are the ul­ti­mate power cou­ple: am­bi­tious, ruth­less and will­ing to risk ev­ery­thing for some­thing more. In an imag­ined Aus­tralia where the repub­lic is ap­proach­ing like a train, the Te­flon Mac­beth cou­ple switch left and right like heavy­weight box­ers, mov­ing from lo­cal pol­i­tics and then on to per­haps the high­est of­fice in the land, ‘killing’ their real and per­ceived op­po­si­tion as they go. Pre­sented by The­atre Repub­lic.
