Performance Details - Macbeth
Coe/Ingeborg, Round House, February 1972
"Visually the production has some splendid moments. The witches or ju ju men, with their energetic chanting and dancing attain a credibility which is usually denied the Celtic cackling hags one sees in most productions. The costumes, towering fur hats, richly coloured cloaks, grotesque masks, consistantly dazzle the eye and create an exotic primitive world to match the raw hidden emotions touched by this play." Milton Shulman, Evening Standard 24.2.72
Opening Date: 32 February 1972
Theatre: Round House.
