Macbeth Jan 2019

london west end

 

With Christopher Eccleston. A fantastic, brilliant, new production. The three witches are three creepy preteen girls in red dresses. I was scared witless by them. A janitor added chalk marks to the dark walls whenever someone was killed. They made TIME their theme, with a clock ticking down the seconds. Very clever: when Macbeth first sees the ghost of Duncan at the dinner party, nothing is there. Only when he’s alone the spectres of his victims manifest. It was a spectacular production at the barbican centre and Christopher Eccleston really was amazing in it.
