TREY CLARKSON TALKS ABOUT MACBETH FALLOUT:
Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS ADAPTATION?
A:. I wanted to adapt a Shakespearean tragedy with a more modern twist. Macbeth lends itself to the genre of post-apocalyptic because of all the violence.
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE IN THE PLAY? WHY?
A: I love the interactions of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. They are steeped in a power struggle and a bold ambition.
Q: WHAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART IN CREATING THIS ADAPTATION?
A: Working in the stylized elements while staying true to the amazing Shakespearean characters.
Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE THROUGH THIS ADAPTATION?
A: An edgy and modern take on a classic. Bringing in the elements of the post-apocalyptic theme help build interest in Shakespeare in our culture, which is currently fascinated by dystopian tales.
Q: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO ADD?
A: Have fun with this piece. Make weapons and costumes. Get your hands dirty with Shakespeare.
