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.

In response to COVID-19, performances of Sleep No More, New York are on hiatus until further notice. To reschedule your booking or for any other questions, email [email protected]

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

Reviews

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

– Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press

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.
