After their rock 'n' roll-play Romeo and Juliet, The Southern Theatre chooses another Shakespeare classic, Macbeth, with Director Lucas De Man putting in his version of the complex relationship between media and politics – two powers with a love-hate relationship.
All politicians who respect themselves have a media staff behind them so they always know exactly what must (or not) be said and in what way.
The media, in turn, play a decisive role in the rise and fall of public figures. Macbeth is trying to find its way into the media-dominated world of today. Media Tycoons - the witches of this version - govern Macbeth and he lost his son in the war, which he himself directs.
