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.

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.
