Lady Macbeth: Evil?

There have been lots of questions from the students about the character of Lady Macbeth and why she is so keen to go through with the murder of Duncan. Although it is easy to just paint her as purely evil, from an acting perspective this should never be the case. We shouldn’t judge her, she is a well rounded human who loves her husband and just wants them to have a great future together.

As far a playing a character like this it is always easier to empathise with what she is going through, put yourself in her shoes. How far would you go to get what you want….?
