A post-apocalyptic, post-gender society at the end of empire. A “Mad Max” world in which titles and prophecy mean nothing. And everything.
Unsex Me Here leans towards the subtle, the intimate, and the personal, its quieter choices aided by the dimensions of The Brick and the audience's proximity to the actors . . .O'Brien brings fine-drawn nuance to Lady Macbeth right from her first scene . . . O’Brien and Stone generate palpable chemistry and tension . . . Stone's reaching out reflexively to touch Lady Macbeth after hearing of her death is one of those small but effective and memorable moments that characterize this production . . . Vaughan is excellent as Macduff . . . This casting experiment imparts new energy to familiar scenes . . . One hopes that it won't require an apocalypse for us to begin to rethink gendered normativities (including their reinforcement through language), and Unsex Me Here: The Tragedy of Macbeth provides an entertaining starting point with a singular (re)vision. — Thinking Theater
