Fresh from their success at Theseus' palace, in an encore no one requested, this summer, the Mechanicals hit the road with two new shows: their own inimitable takes on classic tragedies Julius Caesar and Macbeth.

 

In this new 60 minute mash-up adaptation of Shakespeare, come see the Mechanicals perform the Bard's work as it was never intended. They've got water balloons! Scripts!  A five foot cardboard dagger! A dog! As well as lots and lots of laughs and heart.  The only thing they don't have is talent.
