Tell me about your show.

The Scottish play, an ancient curse, and a disembodied head on a dessert trolley out for revenge – MACBETH’S HEAD – a new play (half in prose and half in original verse) is the story of actors Tim and Rupert who activate an ancient curse and awaken Macbeth’s severed head, who’s athirst for revenge on William Shakespeare for ruining his life. The Head, using his arcane powers, enslaves Tim and Rupert, and then brings Space Pirate Cleopatra, gender bending Richard III, and Hip Hop Hamlet to life to help in his insidious designs. It’s up to Tim and Rupert to stop the maniacal Head lest Shakespeare’s works are obliterated from the face of the earth forever!

Now again in the style of a tweet by Donald Trump.

This head guy…he’s on top of it. We’re going to be good friends.

What other shows or artists are you looking forward to seeing?

The Life Henry by Adam Bailey, Bendy Sign Tavern by Sex T-Rex, Hands Down by Warren P. Sonoda.

 

The world is becoming an increasingly crazy and volatile place. If you could air-drop an elite squad of theatre artists any place in the world, where would you drop them and what would their mission be?

I’d drop them in Parliament on a -50’C day to convince them to let Turks and Caicos join Canada by filling the house with sand and then distributing fruity cocktails.
