The Scottish Play

Driving a red Ford Mustang into the summer, I once again find myself playing a part in the grand détour. For two weeks my friend Gabriel is visiting me in America. Following a fast drive down to the blossoming parks of Philadelphia we went into Manhattan for the much-praised Macbeth production at the Lyceum Theater, featuring among others Patrick Stewart.

Set within a joyless, stark environment flooded by Stalin-era military regalia, the play was surprisingly accessible as it progressed towards its existential emptiness.
