And your enjoyment will only increase if you're a fan of the Bard.”

In a small room, Mac and Beth sit. They type. Words. They long to find more meaning in their lives, looking to emulate their Supervisor, the Man Behind the Door. Into their world come Ste, Whit and Che; three childish creatures who prophesied that the couple will become great - if they are willing to kill for it. And so begins a journey into their worst nightmares.

 

Based on Shakespeare’s great tragedy, this sparse re-imagining is told with only five characters and set in the minds of a frustrated, sleep-deprived pair.
