Psst, We Find a Secret at New York’s ‘Sleep No More’

+

Based upon Shakespeare‘s MacBeth, Sleep No More, the voyeuristic drama conceived by the British theatre collective, Punchdrunk, is set in a trio of “abandoned” warehouses in New York’s Chelsea. A theatrical enigma, Sleep No More is rife with sexual gluttony  that runneth over with graphic, sanguine scenes. At the beginning of the show, audience members, who are free to roam through the 100-some rooms throughout, are enskulled in Venetian masks to unabashedly peek through musky dresser drawers and sneak through lightless corridors. With secrets around every winding corner, Sleep No More has guests coming back again and again, each time, making new discoveries. The following photo is an image of Malcolm’s typewriter and writings in the detective agency — certain to lure overzealous thespians back into the confines of the bloody, suspenseful walls.
