Scottish actor Alan Cumming is set to bare all in his new play, a one-man version of William Shakespeare's Macbeth.
The Tony Award winner stars as an inmate in a mental asylum in the innovative adaptation of the Shakespeare classic, and admits playing all the parts in the script has been a challenge.
He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "I started to itch to do a play again and MACbeth came to the surface in my mind. I never thought I would do it in a conventional way. A sweaty MACbeth with blood on his arms coming in fresh from the battle doesn't interest me...
"It's nuts, what we're doing. Nuts!... The adrenaline you feel is like the equivalent to having a minor car crash."
There is an extra surprise in store for the audience as the play features brief nudity.
He quips, "Guess whose it is?" before adding, "Once in a while it's good to challenge yourself in a way that's really daunting."
MACbeth will debut at The National Theatre of Scotland later this month (Jun12) before transferring to New York's Lincoln Center.
