William Shakespeare’s most notorious villains have decided to destroy their creator and become masters of their own fates, and it’s up to his greatest heroes to stop them! Will Lady MacBeth and Iago cheat their way to the top? Is Richard III as big a dick as everyone thinks? Will Hamlet finally decide living is worth killing for?

Originally a graphic novel, this page-to-stage transfer allows the audience to watch Andy Berlanger’s beautiful artwork while by Anthony Del Col & Conor McCreery’s dialogue is voiced by some of Chicago’s finest voiceover talents, directed by Strawdog Theatre’s own Anderson Lawfe
r. Hailed as, “Your chance to be entertained by a Shakespearean action adventure,” this wildly innovative production combines the epic scope of a comic book with evocative sound design to bring this clever play on classic plays to life before your eyes.
