    A free lunchtime performance as part of the “3 for Free” series.

    Daughter of a theatre legend and a prima ballerina, award-winning actress Mark Wilson dissects her own story and her next job: being directed by her father as Lady Macbeth. Grand performances, whispered confessions, and booming self-mockery combine as she prepares, promotes and performs the role of her life.

    Mark Wilson is an International Fellow of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London. Unsex Me is somewhere between stand up comedian Bill Hicks, the In-Yer-Face British playwrights of the 1990s and the Royal Shakespeare Company. It’s post-dramatic theatre steeped in controversial, dark comedy.

    “An entire audience erupts in simultaneous joy and disbelief… laughing, blinking, screaming, heads in hands face down, eyes front, this is not happening, did that just happen?” – 5th Wall
