SYNOPSIS

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!

INSPIRATION

“Somebody should write a play about Macbeth’s disembodied head

coming back to life to get revenge on Shakespeare.” – Adam Falcone

 

Inspired by a conversation with a friend one morning on the way to class while in theatre school many years ago, Kyle McDonald undertook the writing of the play to show the world a side of Shakespeare and classical theatre they’d never seen before.

COMPANY

This view of classical material is part of (the pen is) Mightier Productions’ mandate: to produce entertaining and interesting film, television theatre, and literature by merging tradition with innovation for an audience who craves to be swept up and transported away. The company’s mission also extends to creating work that helps the younger generations develop interest in classical material.
