The Stratford Zoo looks like a normal zoo... until the gates shut at night. That's when the animals come out of their cages to stage elaborate performances of Shakespeare's greatest works.

They might not be the most accomplished thespians, but they've got what counts – heart.

Also fangs, feathers, scales, and tails.

With amazing illustrations by Zack Giallongo (Broxo, Ewoks– Shadows of Endor), this is a Macbeth that can be enjoyed by the whole flock, pack, or family. So take your seats and prepare for Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy as you’ve never seen it– funny! And with tacos!
