“In this society, it seems that man is a warrior, he's a soldier, he's a battler, he's a killer. And the debate is about ‘is that a man?’”
Liverpool Everyman Youth Theatre alumnus David Morrissey returned to the iconic venue to take on the title role in Macbeth.
Describing Macbeth as ‘victim’ as well as ‘villain’, Morrissey reflects on the character’s psychological decline and explains how he, as an actor, found a way to empathise with the soldier. Morrissey considers Macbeth’s relationship with the audience and explains why, in times of political turmoil, Shakespeare remains as relevant as ever.
