Macbeths, Hope Theatre - Review

As the audience is ushered in, one notices the smell of joss sticks – a common enough item, but within the intimate theatrical space that is the Hope Theatre, it transforms a stage into a lived-in space, a home... One of the most surprising things about Macbeths' solipsistic premise is why no one hasn’t thought about it before. We’ve had the likes of Hamlet the play from the point of view of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, its peripheral characters, but we’ve not had another Shakespearean play based solely on its title characters.
