Great staging, Spectacular, Immersive, Imaginative, Absorbing

See it if you love an immersive walk-through, great staging and lighting, a refreshing new feel to a well-known play, Indira Varma on stage

Don't see it if you find strobed lighting or sudden explosions difficult (there are some throughout); dislike decaying highly styled minimalist settings Read more

Riveting, Relevant, Intense, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like the Bard. The script is faithful, Indira Varma is excellent, Ralph Fiennes is compelling. The actor who plays Macduff is very good.

Don't see it if You don't like Shakespeare with a modern twist.

Absorbing, Intense, Great staging

See it if Want to just see a Ralph Fiennes masterclass and a new modern take on the Scottish play.

Don't see it if You want a stand out Lady Macbeth, they didn’t leave her much space to make it more than it was.

Gimmick, Loud, Modern, Well spoken, Ambitious

See it if You are doing GCSE Macbeth like the girl behind me who made too much noise. It’s a bit Macbeth for the Netflix generation. Well acted.

Don't see it if You like a comfortable seat.

Slightly lacking, Entertaining, Clever

See it if like Shakespeare, we just expected more from such a strong cast. MacDuff, Banquo & Lady Macbeth were amazing. Ralph a little lacking

Don't see it if you're expecting something special -
