About the Show
A modern take on the tale of Macbeth set in the world of Western Australian state politics. Macbeth: Thane of Cannington, Thane of Claremont… he who would be ‘King.’
Paul and Lainey Macbeth are the ultimate power couple: ambitious, ruthless and willing to risk everything for something more.
Signifying Nothing is a mash-up of the original Shakespeare text and the somewhat arrogant scribing of Greg Fleet (too daft or blinded by his own ambition to know his literary place). Fleet also wrote This Is Not A Long Song and the hit memoir These Things Happen.
“It is a tale told by an idiot
Full of sound and fury
With actors appearing both on stage and on screen, the cast is a who’s who of Australian theatre, film and television, including Roz Hammond, Lawrence Mooney, Greg Fleet, Luke Hewitt, and Caitliyn Beresford-Ord.
Friendship, love, sex, power. All is currency.
Vote 1 – Macbeth.
