Shakespeare's supernatural tragedy is presented in a nightmarish new reading by Sebastian Rex. A violence of sleep-deprivation and guilt are brought to life using choreography, physical theatre and an acerbic new voice.

Reality and hallucination merge in this astonishing piece of theatre; it is not to be missed.
