Premiere date

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth along with the celebrated couple Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love inspired Gerardjan Rijnders to write a play in 12 acts.

A pitch-black comedy about unbridled ambition, hunger for power and an addition to intoxication and ecstasy, inspired by Macbeth & Kurt Cobain and Lady Macbeth & Courtney Love. A triptych with a hilarious interview with the pop stars, a freaky fast-forward puppet version of Macbeth with children’s toys which results in a merciless symbiosis of the grunge couple Cobain-Love and the royal couple. Two seriously troubled people who are trying to escape from their mental prison in brief and concise sentences. The loneliness howls through the room and the attempts to reverse the inevitable end, are heartbreaking.
