It is primarily based on William Shakespeare 's Macbeth , with inspiration also taken from noir films especially those of Alfred Hitchcock , as well as some reference to the Paisley witch trials. The company reinvented Sleep No More as a co-production with Emursive, and began performances on March 7, Sleep No More adapts the story of Macbeth , deprived of nearly all spoken dialogue and set primarily in a dimly-lit, s-era establishment called the McKittrick Hotel, whose website claims it has been recently "restored" but which is actually a block of warehouses in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, transformed into a hotel-like performance space. Sleep No More 's presentational form is considered promenade theatre , in which the audience walks at their own pace through a variety of theatrically designed rooms, as well as environmental theatre , in which the physical location, rather than being a traditional playhouse , is an imitation of the actual setting. It is also best described as immersive theatre , rather than interactive theatre , because although the audience may move through the settings, interact with the props, or observe the actors at their own pace, their interference has no bearing on the story or the performers except in rare instances.
