An interesting, if not always successful, attempt to complete the story left unfinished at the end of The Scottish Play. While I enjoyed seeing a rather well-done play in blank verse, some scenes were wholly unnecessary and others poorly written - and the phrases stolen from The Scottish and other Shakespeare plays were unnecessary winks to an audience who doesn't need them. Still, there were some scenes of real power and tension as well as some lines of sheer beauty. It's an impressive attempt - even if it's not how I'd tell the story.
