Abstract Sentiment Theatre Company's MACBETH: TIM BURTON MEETS SHAKESPEARE Opens 1/22


The Abstract Sentiment Theatre Company has announcd Macbeth: Tim Burton Meets Shakespeare, a Tim Burton styled Macbeth staged in an asylum. Shakespeare's violent story of one man's fateful journey from good to evil will be presented in a condensed script and visually infused by the inspiration of Tim Burton. Set in a war torn community known as Scotland, at a time when the gears of power are beginning to shift. Families struggle for survival; lords dominate the high-rises and children possess insight and wisdom way beyond their years. Macbeth: Tim Burton Meets Shakespeare will run for eight performances and open on January, 22, 2015 at 8 pm.

"This project began as a single image and a setting. The setting was an asylum and the image was Lady Macbeth obsessively scrubbing her hands with a wire scrubbing brush, making more blood with every desperate attempt to get clean. The futility and vulnerability of this cracking mind fueled by this insatiable inner fire really spoke to us." - Abstract Sentiment Theatre Company
