Main Street Theater will introduce Houston to Canada’s La Fille Du Laitier, a unique theater company that bills itself as a “Theater Delivery Service.” In their Macbeth Muet, Shakespeare’s classic is performed entirely without words as the ultimate power couple is transformed through their dark and fateful choices in this hilarious, high-speed romp of object theatre, dance, and pure madness. For ages 13+
“Frenetic and fun and ingenious, Macbeth Muet is killer theatre.” – CBC News
“This is a display of sheer theatrical invention, certainly a must-see…” – Winnipeg Free Press
“thoroughly entertaining…” – On Stage Ottawa
Main Street Artistic Director Rebecca Greene Udden first saw La Fille Du Laitier’s Macbeth Muet in New York and was captivated by their ingenuity – and the show was hilarious! La Fille du Laitier is a theatre delivery service, “bringing creative and innovative theatre to your doorstep! We want to reinterpret and reimagine theatre classics, bringing them to a modern audience, both young and old, at an affordable price. La Fille du Laitier believes in reclaiming our right to madness, and the freedom of the imagination!”
While the production at Main Street will be performed in the theater itself, La Fille du Laitier generally performs out of a mobile theatre truck, just like the food trucks you see around any city. Performances could happen at any time, surprising the community with performances they might not normally get the chance to see. Their goal is to initiate people from the community into art they might not normally go out to experience, or have the money to afford.
