"'Yes, someone is going to die,' he said. 'Someone always does when we perform the cursed play'." The Tragedy of Prince Tyrus is one of the greatest plays of all time, except for one complication. It's cursed. Each time it is performed a member of the cast dies. Sometimes it's a tragic accident. Sometimes it's not. Eleven years have passed since the last death and the Queen has commissioned another performance. Against their better judgement the Morgenstern Troupe have accepted. Over the next two days friendships will be tested, rivalries will form, and the bloodstained history of the cursed play will resurface. As tensions rise the actors begin to ask themselves: if the curse really is inescapable, isn't it better to kill than be killed? Let the show begin. *** Inspired by the real-life superstitions of Macbeth and written in the tradition of Shakespeare's theatre, Malediction: The Cursed Play blends the humour of wordplay and mistaken identity with the trials of family tension and forbidden love. It is a murder mystery, just as it is a tale of making peace with our demons, but most of all it is a tribute to the Bard of Avon, history's greatest storyteller.
