Accidental Shakespeare Company
Accidental Shakespeare Company is proud to present......Hit & Run Shakespeare: MACBETH
Prepare yourselves for fast-paced, high-stakes bardolatry. There is NO director, NO rehearsal, and NO plan: just pure, spontaneous PLAY! Our ensemble of actors will come together, fully memorized and with fully developed characters, to create a one night only, fully staged production of Shakespeare's shortest tragedy of MACBETH. (With WATER!!!)
The Accidental Shakespeare Company embraces the philosophy “Play on!” by bringing elements of improvisation to classical text. A referee will monitor the play and ensure that any dropped lines, missed cues, or slack entrances are punished appropriately. Each actor will costume themselves, and is required to bring one random prop to contribute to the play.
We encourage you the audience to contribute a prop as well!! A prop can be absolutely anything at all – a common household item, something random, something silly, something useful. Props will be placed around the playing space for actors to use during the performance. (Props will be returned after the performance, but please don’t bring anything extremely valuable or breakable. Thanks!)
We believe that the joy of live theater lies in its accidents and screw-ups — and watching actors deal with them creatively. The hilarity, tragedy, the life, the danger and the truth of MACBETH will emerge from this sense of play, and the dynamic it creates with you — our audience!

Come Play With Us!
A note to the audience: We are so proud to announce that this edition of Hit & Run Shakespeare is being done in an outdoor space! Like our Hit & Run Shakespeare: TITUS ANDRONICUS, which was around this time last year, we will be incorporating WATER into our production. So please come to the show PREPARED TO GET SOAKED!!
