Preview screening of ‘Macbeth’
On Thursday 13th June we attended the preview screening of our latest drama, Kit Monkman’s adaption of ‘Macbeth’. It was held at the Courthouse Hotel in Soho and was a very intimate screening. After viewing the film all attendees were invited to share a drink and discuss the film with the director, producers and various cast members.
For those that don’t know, the story follows young General Macbeth, who pulls off a glorious victory in battle before returning to an indolent court where honours are dispensed by whim. Spurred on by prophesying drifters and an ambitious wife, Macbeth sets his sights on the throne. In Kit Monkman’s adventurous new adaptation, this compelling tale of unchecked ambition, soured friendship, lost intimacy and the descent into nihilism is encountered in a strange and claustrophobic territory partly conjured by the mind.
‘Macbeth’ has also been shown at York’s International Shakespeare Festival, and is due to be screened in The Gdańsk Shakespeare Festival, which runs from the 28th July to the 6th August.
