Ian Rolls – Macbeth

The first detail that jumps out at you is the incredible set design, with the platform extending into the front row seats. As the show started, I really liked how it allowed the actors to be close to the audience while still keeping them within the scenes. The trapdoors and curtains under the extended platform was another really nice touch because it helped create an eerie feeling with the slamming of the trapdoors in tune with the drums in the back and the sudden unexpected appearances and disappearances. The cast did an amazing job replicating the dark and twisted plot of Macbeth and making me feel scared and a bit uncomfortable, and the lighting and sound just helped enhance those feelings. I really enjoyed seeing it, nice job to all the fellows and Humesters in it!
