Take one power hungry lesbian couple. Throw in a slow-witted king, a Caribbean sidekick, a trio of flamboyantly gay "weird sisters," and a whole host of other misfits.
And what do you have?
Why, Macbeth, of course !

Drawing on the tradition of Monty Python and BlackAdder, Macbeth - The Comedy takes us back to a time when men were not necessarily men and ruthless tyrants could also be strict vegetarians.

"A surprisingly enjoyable goof: Macbeth as if rewritten by the staff of The Onion. Director/screenwriter Allison L. LiCalsi toys with Shakespearean conventions to great comic effect." Philadelphia Citypaper

[Macbeth the Comedy] subscribes to an entertaining form of literalism that paradoxically liberates Shakespeare's metaphor-laden language ... the effect is the equivalent of Macbeth on a truth serum."
