What’s Done is DoneMay 26, 2017
Esplanade Theatre Hall
Macbeth, one of Shakespeare’s tragedies about a brave soldier turning into a tyrant in the lust for continued dominance, receives a modern and provocative twist as Bollywood actor and director Rajat Kapoor serves it fresh in his production ‘What’s Done is Done’. The play, which is packed with strong performances from actors Ranvir Shorey, Kalki Koechlin and Vinay Pathak takes the themes of power, guilt, falsehoods and the supernatural and puts a contemporary spin on them while remaining true to one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies.
Once again the clowns draw us to the world of Macky B and his Lady.
The righteous Macky B is a good man, brave soldier, loyal friend.
And he would have been the same perhaps, if he didn’t meet those three weird sisters that night!
He would have been happier.
Sometimes it is better to not know what is in store for us.
Sometimes, all you need is a little push- to go to the other side.
