Subject:        Macbeth Porn Spin-Off

I saw the spin-off In the Flesh (dir. Stuart Canterbury).  It follows
the plot fairly closely, cutting the children's parts entirely (for
obvious reasons).  Most of the language of the play is adapted, but Lady
Macbeth's sleepwalking scene is kept as is Macbeth's "tomorrow,
tomorrow, and tomorrow" soliloquy.  The weird sisters are made lesbian.
Malcolm is also dropped.
