Much better, you didn’t sit there scratching your head wondering what on earth was going to happen next – indeed it was presented in as straight forward a fashion as possible. problems with the complexity of the set leading to long waiting times between scenes, but this is a negligible issue given the level of immersion they created.
Performances were excellent, with special mention to the quartet of village elders and the whole thing was a joy from start to finish. Considering that this is their “specialist” piece for the tour this year (i.e. played only once whilst the others are repeated at each venue) it seems odd that Macbeth was given a second airing rather than this, far more accessible piece.
