After performing to sold-out houses at THE PRETENTIOUS FESTIVAL, Macbeth WIthout Words has been asked back for an exclusive three-week engagement at The Brick!

Traditionally inferior to their British brethren in the presentation of Shakespeare, how can American actors approach the grandeur of the Bard? Easy: by removing the all of that difficult, unnecessary language. The latest installment of Piper McKenzie’s Bizarre Science Fantasy physical-theatre series, Macbeth Without Words presumes to improve upon the classic story about the original social climbers with an all-movement version inspired by silent film, modern dance and comic books – with extra emphasis on the gore, the ghosts, and the supernatural.
