INTERVIEW: IQBAL KHAN. Heather Neill talks to the director about his critically contentious production of Macbeth, starring Ray Fearon and Tara Fitzgerald, at Shakespeare’s Globe, and hears him talk in detail about the thinking behind his approach. Recorded at the Globe: 14-07-2016. The production runs to Oct 1.

“[The Macbeths] don’t have an actual child. I hope that’s clear. What theatre allows us to do is to work in different realities…  They allow the consoling illusion of a child at times.”
