Shakespeare’s murderous couple cordially invites you to witness a hyper-speed rendition of their gruesome story, told entirely without words. Witness a silent pantomime of their tragic love story. Ambitions will emerge, blood will be spilled, and eggs will be broken. The story unfolds in a world devoid of morality, where human lives are as disposable as paper cups. The actor-puppeteers perform choreographed feats to an intensely dramatic soundtrack befitting of any game of thrones or pop icon.

Kings will die, nature itself will be twisted, and paper plates will...crack. Whether you’re a fan of the Bard or not, Macbeth Muet gives a visceral and bloody ride through the story of a couple who, after a few wrong turns, plunge into the deep end of their own desires.

Take your rodeo experience to the next level and see Macbeth Muet as a double feature with Cow Love.
