The “drunk Shakespeare” craze comes to Madison!

It’s one Shakespearean classic, six actors, and way too much alcohol. Before the show, one (or more!) performers will be drafted to start drinking, and won’t be allowed to start until they are in no condition to perform. It’s like Drunk History crashed the Folger Library and refused to leave.

Will it be the story of a thane and his wife who bury their resentment for one another in the bottle? Of three witches who had one too many before bubbling their cauldron? Of rulership rivals Macduff and Malcolm, who may be reduced to kneeling before the throne before they can seize it?

The original cast featured returning players from last season’s The Tragedy of Macbeth: Jason Compton, Sarah Z. Johnson, Bryan Metrish, and Tia Tanzer, joined by Marie Freese and Joshua Woolfolk.

Directed by Francisco C. Torres, with derisive and cruel stage management by Tanis Steed.

Performed July 1-July 31 2017.
