SYNOPSIS: This fast-moving script delivers Shakespeare’s Macbeth in a very different way – with each character speaking lines that consist of only one word. This puts an emphasis on inflection and action, since the actors have only one word to convey the meaning of what otherwise would be an entire line. Trying to make Shakespeare accessible to a general audience? This has all the things you love about Macbeth – the witches, the sword fights, the drama – but is presented in a way that will entertain even the most die-hard skeptic of Shakespeare.
