Rupert Goold discusses his process of directing the Chichester Festival production of Macbeth starring Sir Patrick Stewart for the screen.
Goold reveals his directorial intentions for setting the play against a Soviet-style backdrop, taking inspiration from spy novels as well as horror films to create a dark and gritty interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. He also provides an insight into the differences between the banquet scene on stage and on camera, commenting on how film allows for further exploration of the characters’ internal and emotional struggles.
