‘O, full of scorpions is my mind.’
The spellbinding story of love and murder, power and paranoia, and the internal struggles of a married couple as they try to control their destiny, and one another…
This official tie-in edition to the Donmar Warehouse’s hotly anticipated 2023 revival of Shakespeare’s extraordinary psychological drama features rich and revealing behind-the-scenes material exploring how the production was conceived and developed.
Starring David Tennant and Cush Jumbo, and directed by Donmar Associate Director Max Webster, this bracingly fresh version used binaural sound technology to place the audience inside the minds of the Macbeths, asking us: are we are ever really responsible for our actions?
In addition to the version of Shakespeare’s text performed, this volume also includes a fascinating rehearsal diary, colour photos, and interviews with its leading cast and creative team: Tennant, Jumbo and Webster, plus designer Rosanna Vize, sound designer Gareth Fry and composer and musical director Alasdair Macrae.
