Publisher's Summary

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard.

The poetic richness of the language in "the Scottish play" is enhanced through the medium of radio to bring new depths of anguish to the tortured reasonings of Macbeth and his wife.

Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.

    "Abridged...too much"

    Most of the characters were portrayed the way I imagine; I particularly loved the playfulness of the witches (vs. a decrepit croniness). I didn't like the voice for Macbeth. Most disappointing to me is that, gosh, maybe 20%, or more, of the play is cut out. Too much. It's already a short(ish) play.

    "Macbeth"

    What a great way to "read" Macbeth. Being done in a play format brings it to life and allows the "reader" to fully enjoy the work of a genius while sitting in the comfort of his or her home.

    "Macbeth"

    It was very well acted, however, I was disappointed that so much of the witch dialogue was surpassed.

    "Compelling performances"

    This is a great version, full of emotion and drama. Having a full Scottish cast gives it a feeling of authenticity and realism. Ken Stott and Phylis Logan in the leads give compelling performances that bring the language to life. Recommended for any student of Shakespeare.
