From the Olivier Award-winning company Cheek by Jowl comes a scintillating take on Shakespeare's Macbeth that is physical, psychologically taut, and unsettling to the bone. One brilliant move follows another: Shakespeare's infamous witches, here distilled to haunting voices, absolutely terrify in their evanescence as the actors move like phantasms across the shadow-flecked stage. All the while, the madness of Lady Macbeth (the magnetic Anastasia Hille) accelerates with fatal inexorability. Toxically enmeshed, the lady and her lord inhabit a single, conflicted consciousness, one that festers in self-loathing even as it blindly seeks the destruction that will ultimately be its own.
