The Story of Never Say Macbeth
The curse of Macbeth . . . It brings fire! Death! Boring first dates! When a science teacher brings the curse upon his ex-girlfriend's play, he must battle new-age superstitious actors and a crazed director to win her back.
What happens when you say Macbeth in a theatre?
- In 1937, Laurence Olivier almost died when a 25 pound stage weight crashed within an inch of him
- In 1953, Charlton Heston, was severely burned in his groin from tights that had been soaked in kerosene.
- In 2007, science teacher Danny Teller is attacked by a sword-wielding pirate.
Danny shows up at auditions for Macbeth trying to get his girlfriend back. But the director mistakes Danny's story of love for a passionate acting monologue, and casts him as Witch #1. More comfortable with spacecraft than stagecraft, Danny struggles with rehearsals, and incurs the wrath of the cast when he breaks the cardinal rule of acting by saying "Macbeth" in the theatre.
That's when things get weird.
Falling lights, floating grapes, and a singing pirate-ghost...
Danny teams up with a new-age actress, a tough Italian self-help guru, and a sci-fi obsessed stage manager to save the actors and his ex-girlfriend from the curse of Macbeth.
