About the Show

No Name Collective's witchy Halloween production of Shakespeare's bloody tragedy explores the power of fantasy, duality of virtue, and the edges of our moral limits.

Indulgent, Immature, Quirky, Unintentionally camp, Confusing

See it if You want to support a young theatre company that's just out of acting school. You know someone in the company.

Don't see it if You want a more seasoned theatre company w/the life experience to inhabit their characters & to self-edit company members' contributions.

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if you know Macbeth well enough you don't need the characters/progression to be clear, or you want to see a confusing mid-play gender swap.

Don't see it if you're looking for high production value. Read more

Clever, Banal, Slow, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You enjoy this show and actors at work.

Don't see it if You like professionally staged Shakespeare and don't like to be in the action of the story. This is a small space.

Disappointing, Ambitious, Slow

See it if you like Shakespeare experiments and minimal staging. You don't mind sitting for long stretches in uncomfortable chairs.

Don't see it if An opening "prologue" w/no dialogue lasted 30 minutes. It was insulting to the audience, at least to those who stayed awake.

Confusing, Excruciating, Dreadful, Hilarious, Must see

See it if You're in for a night of bad theater, with confusing character changes and random cuts that don't make sense.

Don't see it if You're looking to see a good production of Macbeth or you're not willing to travel all the way for a night of bad theater.

“This particular production reminded me why the works of this playwright continue to be produced frequently...Arguably, the strongest aspect of this production was the way it was staged and its overall ambiance and atmosphere...In terms of the acting, the cast of this production overall was decent...It makes me feel glad I didn’t just stay home watching horror movies on Halloween. Given the long applause at the end of the show, I suspect I’m not alone when I say that.”
