Review of Macbeth from One Stop Arts


Macbeth is a hauntingly exciting production by the well-established ensemble.  

The House of Detention in Clerkenwell lends itself perfectly to the promenade performance, providing haunting brick cells and low lit playing spaces. 


The stand-out performance for me was the young actress Serena Manteghi.   Her versatility was very evident in her transformation from a weird sister to Lady Macbeth, then further on to Lady Macduff. Every word she said was enthralling and each moment she was on stage I couldn’t take my eyes off her. In some cases she outshone Macbeth in their scenes together. A bright future awaits this talented actress. 

An absolutely brilliant show and a triumph for Belt Up.
