A Co-Production between Acting Like Mad and Theatrical Niche Ltd
A new version of William Shakespeare's play by Sebastian Rex
Thursday 17 October, 7.30pm
Free pre-show talk from 6.30pm
Shakespeare's supernatural tragedy is presented in a nightmarish new reading by Sebastian Rex. A violence of sleep-deprivation and guilt are brought to life using choreography, physical theatre and an acerbic new voice. The themes of greed and megalomania are showcased in the original Shakespearean language with modern-day additions; as a timeless Macbeth feels the vice-like grip of past sins, and the harrowing consequences of murdering sleep.
Methought I heard a voice cry, "Sleep no more!
Macbeth does murder sleep" - the innocent sleep
Reality and hallucination merge in this astonishing piece of theatre.
