“It is without question, the hardest part I’ve ever played”
Antony Sher reflects on playing the Scottish king in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2001 production of Macbeth.
Recounting his journey from ‘false impression’ to mastery, Sher explores Shakespeare’s use of language, focusing on the contradictions written into the role of Macbeth. Providing an insight into the research behind his characterisation, he describes meeting two murderers to understand the psychology behind committing an act of this kind.
