When Zinnie HarrisMacbeth (an undoing) made its world premiere at Royal Lyceum Theatre earlier this year, The Guardian praised the “audacious conjuring” of Macbeth and the “superb” Nicole Cooper in her turn as Lady Macbeth (which she’ll reprise for Theatre for a New Audience). The Scotsman wrote that “Cooper’s performance as Lady Macbeth grows deeper, richer and more fascinating with every passing scene.” In her acclaimed plays This Restless House and The Duchess (of Malfi), Harris reimagined classic texts, bringing the perspectives of their female characters center stage. Shakespeare’s iconic Lady Macbeth is ruthless and driven, unstoppable in her pursuit of power, yet she quickly descends into madness and despair. Harris' thrilling new version undoes the story we know and remakes it, examining Lady Macbeth’s trajectory asking if we have really heard the whole story.
