Shakespeare Re-Translated

$25 tickets available at the door

What happens when you run Shakespeare’s spookiest play through the worlds most popular translation service?

Here’s the deal: We take Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and run it through a popular online language Translator into another language. Then we take that translated version and run it BACK through that same Translator and translate it back into English.

On the night, a group of actors get up in front of an audience and read this re-translated version. They won’t find out what language it was translated to and from, until that very night, and they only get to see the translated play until an hour before you hear them read it!

This reading of Macbeth, Re-translated is a fundraiser for Homebody Productions upcoming presentation of Phil Rickaby’s The Commandment at the Halifax Fringe.

DOORS: 6pm
Advance Tickets: $15(artsworkers) – $20 (general admission)
