Never before have I seen a Shakespeare play that has evoked such emotion. I was very familiar with Macbeth, as most people are. However, I did not experience the strength of emotion in any previous production or reading of Macbeth that I did in this performance.
Mountford portrays a deeply intense and crazed Macbeth who slowly and scarily descends into madness. Along with the power of Shaheen Khan's Lady Macbeth and the unbelievably comical and new three Witches, the cast provide a new and exciting take to this famous play.
