Read on for a round up and to hear what people are saying about Macbeth so far…

“Iris Theatre never fail to amaze me with their new interpretations of classic stories. The originality and sheer brutality of this adaptation, make it perhaps the best production of Macbeth that I have ever seen.” – ★★★★★ West End Wilma

“Beautifully staged in the Actor’s Church, the entire production is first rate. Shakespeare really did come to life as the sun went down and the evening took over, mirroring the fall of Macbeth as his plans and dreams disappeared over the horizon. Highly recommended.” – ★★★★★ London Theatre 1

“David Hywel Baynes excels in his role of Macbeth. His projection in a vast open space is second to none.” – ★★★★★ The Spy In The Stalls

“Richard the Third was a triumph a couple of years ago and this is an unbeatable production of the Scottish play…This is a Macbeth like no other. ” – ★★★★★ Remote Goat

“A cracking second half brings the audience into its horrific world fantastically, and gives us an intimacy to violence that properly unnerves and entertains.” – ★★★★ The Reviews Hub
