UNSEX’d returns to a time when men played all the roles in theatre and tells the madcap story of two boy-players who fight it out for the role of Lady Macbeth in Shakespeare’s newest play. Both will do anything, anything, to catch the eye, and affections, of the playwright. This cheeky comedy is one part All About Eve, one part Macbeth and all parts E! True Hollywood Story. Completely historically inaccurate, satirically biting and gratuitously crude, UNSEX’d also has a haunting dark side that questions fame, gender, and the truth about beauty. This show is for everyone from Shakespeare buffs to celebrity stalkers to camp and drag enthusiasts, and even that person who likes their humour just a little bit over the line.

UNSEX’d is touted as “a riot of colour, action and comedy” (Gordon Farell, EILE Magazine) and as a show that “turns Shakespeare on its tits!” (Brian Merriman, Artistic Director of IDGTF). Theatre Outré’s show is for everyone from Shakespeare buffs to celebrity stalkers to camp and drag enthusiasts, and even that person who likes their humour just a little bit over the line (or a lot over).
Tickets range from $17 to $25. Audience Advisory: mature content and nudity.
