Selina Cartmell

In today's Sunday Tribune, Colin Murphy interviews Selina Cartmell, the young director of the Macbeth production at the Empty Space we'll be seeing tomorrow night. He quotes her words about the Space itself :-

'It's a ghostly place. It started me thinking about the play as a play for the dead. As if they've been wandering this space for centuries, and they need to do this play to move on.' The play is steeped in 'fear and terror', she says, but she won't be turning it into a gore-fest: her approach is to 'allow the audience to use their imagination, rather than to spell it out.'
