Lady Macbeth and Her Pal Megan

  • Santa Cruz Theater 1805 East 7th Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

When a comedian is informed that she can’t play Lady Macbeth - because Lady Macbeth is a tragic figure of powerful darkness, and Megan is the human equivalent of a golden retriever - she sets out to prove them all wrong, only to discover that not only must she reevaluate her preconceptions of Lady Macbeth, she must reconsider herself as both a woman and as a standup comedian.

Silly, theatrical, and complex, Megan attempts to answer the question, “What’s it like to be a woman comedian?” Spoiler: it’s murder.
