A Tunisian Macbeth where Shakespeare's malevolent tyrant and his wife are reincarnated as the equally diabolical modern-day duo, Leïla and Zine Ben Ali. Combining Sheakespeare's text with film and reportage this production interrogates the way Arab leaders use, possess and perpetuate power. Shakespeare's vision of evil and driving ambition finds new resonance amidst a mafia-like culture.
