MACBETH | DIRECTOR’S CUT
Fri, 21 Oct 2016, 13:15 – Sat, 22 Oct 2016, 21:00 BST
Directed by Paul Davies
Originally directed by Nigel Charnock for Volcano in 1999, this furious two-hander takes the bloodiest and most intense of Shakespeare’s plays and strips it bare of its regal cushioning, evoking the tawdry domestic world of contemporary serial killers in an erotic and violent theatrical assault on the senses. Lyrical, apocalyptic, extreme and dangerous.
“Gripping, physical, imagistic, textually alert… It brings one closer to the dark heart of the play than many more orthodox versions” The Guardian
