'Macbeth' is a play about fear. When first performed in 1606, belief in witches and supernatural intervention in the governance of the realm suggests that this play would have held a real sense of immediacy and danger for the audience. Today, it retains an aura of superstition, especially in theatrical circles. I hope to use theatrical techniques to allow the audience to share Macbeth's physical and metaphysical insecurity. On it simplest level, think 'The Woman in Black'.
