We continue Act 3 of Macbeth.We explore the growing paranoia of Macbeth after the killing of King Duncan. We’ll stop frequently to analyse important moments and to decode Shakespeare’s intention as it sits as a cipher inside his words. Once again, when we reach the end of the act, we’ll then watch the film version together – and examine the difference between what you had in your mind’s eye, and what this director made of the play.
