Macbeth

Macbeth poster 2002

31st January - 23rd March 2002

BMW Group Plant Oxford


Introduction

The stark factory environment created a near perfect setting for the dark violence of the Scottish play. Fresh interpretations enlivened this well-known Shakespearean tragedy: the weird sisters were represented as one woman with a mirrored booth, surrounded by her reflections – a sinister comment on the unified and mysterious nature of the witches’ identity.

Reviews

“Zoe Seaton, … offers a characteristic production, fast-moving and exciting, where the big stage effects never blur the essential edge of the piece.”
The Oxford Times

“This is Shakespeare’s Macbeth in the raw – don’t miss it.”
