“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.”
Taking a break from the comedic side of things, the Boston Bastards plunge into the hearty world of tragedy at The Rockwell in Somerville with their hit show Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth. Upon hearing the weird sister’s prediction, Macbeth and his tiger wife take matters into their own hands and manage to burn down everything in their wake. Well, almost. Fair is foul and foul is fair in this tale of prophecy gone slightly off the rails. Perhaps we should add a bit of liquor to help the process along? Featuring Shakespeare’s most lovable witches, ghostly best friends, hell-hounds, unhinged wives, enough dead kings to give Game of Thrones a run for its money, and lots of plaid, Scotland storms Boston this spring.
