Sleep No More continues to extend its hugely successful New York run due to extraordinary public demand.

Sleep No More tells Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Macbeth through a darkly cinematic lens, offering an audience experience unlike anything else on the New York scene. Audiences move freely through the epic story of Macbeth, creating their own journeys through a film noir world.

Sleep No More has won a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience and a Special Citation For Design And Choreography at the Obie Awards.

The first production of Sleep No More took place in London, 2003. A second rendition was presented by Punchdrunk and The American Repertory Theatre in Boston, 2009.

A merry macabre chase. A voyeur’s delight. Messes with your head as thoroughly as any artificial stimulant. Spectacular!

Brilliantly imagined! Utterly unique! Brilliant and sly and insane. The level of detail is enough to make you swoon

The show infects your dreams. I’ve felt theater overwhelm me before, but until Sleep No More, I’ve never felt it pass through me. It was a lovely evening in hell, one I’ll be recovering from for some time
