Toil and Trouble

Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ – but not like you’ve seen it before!

The audience votes for which actors they want to see in the main roles. But our three unhappy understudies, relegated to the roles of servants and minor characters, will do all they can to make life hard for the victorious leads. Strange accents, pranks, last minute changes, improvisation; they’ll try anything to catch each other off guard and get their revenge.

Presented by Millions of Deaths – a new Auckland company dedicated to staging old plays in new ways.

The show must go on. No matter what.

Directed by Caleb Wells
Starring Courtney Bassett, Kat Glass, Georgia Hoskins-Smith, Albertine Jonas, Natasha Kay Senior, Luke Thornborough, and Caleb Wells.
