Notes

Notes
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre makes several recordings of a single production, using three fixed cameras, to enable practitioners and researchers to observe how the play has developed during the run.
History
Staged in the Kings & Rogues season.
Stills
... designer Katrina Lindsay has certainly given the Globe a makeover. Standing members of the audience are covered by black sheeting through which their heads protrude, suggesting an international convention of Winnies from Beckett’s Happy Days. Slits in the stage surface allow the Weird Sisters to rise from the underworld. A diaphanous curtain, suspended from a circular rail, gives the action an hallucinatory quality. (Michael Billington, The Guardian 30 April 2010)
Reviews
Michael Billington, The Guardian, 30 April 2010. Billinton writes: ".Laura Rogers starts well as a fierce, feisty Lady Macbeth but rattles through the sleepwalking scene as if she had a train to catch".
