Reviews of Macbeth

Ed Howson in Daily Echo wrote:

Much to like about Chris Hawley’s well-designed and well-costumed production of ‘The Scottish Play’, simple floor to celingi white panels not only acting as backdrop, but also as screens for a series of most effective and well thought-out projected images….Alistair Faulkner was a measured and understated Banquo, and Paul Chalmers’ rough and ready Macduff ran the gamut of emotions.

The Witches (Rowenna Greenaway, Lorna Matthews-Keel and Athena Diamond) were most effective as the “secret, black and midnight hags”, and Peter Kelly and Fraser Adams created an enjoyably comical double-act as The Porter and his son

Alex Rennie in the Salisbury Journal wrote

It was a highly polished performance of Shakespeare’s great tragedy Macbeth at Studio Theatre with the director, Chris Hawley, stamping his mark with a very easy to follow and captivating interpretation. It was great to see a full auditorium, and we were treated to a extremely professional display from the start.

Throughout the play I was highly impressed by the younger actors, especially Stanley Morris (Seyton) and Fraser Adams (Porter’s Son) who both look like they will go onto bigger roles in the future.

This didn’t quite feel like the Shakespeare I’ve seen before – it was fast-paced and invigorating.
