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.
