Something wicked this way comes

Tom Skelton, UK comic and improv star, finally gets the chance to put on his favourite Shakespeare play, but he only has one actor (himself), who is registered blind and who might not know all his lines. A fiercely funny farce ensues, as character comedy maverick Skelton presents his unique Macbeth.

Tom Skelton developed Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (a genetic eye condition that runs in his family) ten years ago, leaving him with 5% vison. He first noticed some loss of vision at the Edinburgh Fringe, when fellow performers on stage became blurry, and he started to struggle to read the information on tickets. His sight quickly deteriorated and he was diagnosed weeks later.

Tom's favourite Shakespeare play is Macbeth and he has always wanted to play him. But after losing his vision, he never thought that he would. Tom Skelton's Macbeth is a World Premiere at Adelaide Fringe 2019.

Tom has had four smash hits at Edinburgh: Blind Eye Spy, Blind Man's Bluff, Foolball and 2061. He stars in Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes, works with the BAFTA-winning History Bombs and is a founding member of UK improv comedy group Racing Minds.
