"...who can argue with...a telekinetic living severed head...complete with on point supervillain laugh and deep stentorian voice? Seriously, don’t argue with Macbeth’s Head, he’ll use the force on you."
"Even if you only have an inkling of what these Shakespeare character’s backstory is, you will be able to appreciate their adventurous plot...All in all, a safe bet for something different, yet fun."
-Lorenzo Pagnotta, MY ENTERTAINMENT WORLD
"All in all, Macbeth’s Head is worth seeing for its funny moments and well-written faux-Shakespeare."

MACBETH'S HEAD - OFFICIAL TEASER
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 Tim and Rupert who are playing Macbeth and Macduff in just another production of Macbeth…until Tim activates an ancient curse and awakens 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!
