“Findlay’s Macbeth is engaging and playful, accessible and funny when it needs to be – and Eccleston and Cusack make a gripping central couple, their love blackening as blood does when it dries.” – The Stage ★★★★
“Polly Findlay’s take, starring an earthy Christopher Eccleston, is clear, gripping and, above all, poundingly urgent.” – Evening Standard ★★★★
