The destructive nature of unchecked power-lust and political ambition in Shakespeare’s play speaks to us urgently still today“A drum! A drum! Macbeth doth come.” So say Shakespeare’s Weird Sisters in an uncanny prophesy of the Scottish play’s ubiquity this coming year. Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff star in Rufus Norris’s National Theatre production (previews from 26 February). Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack are next in line in Polly Findlay’s RSC version (previews from 13 March). The Royal Opera, meanwhile, revives Verdi’s Macbeth (from 25 March) closely followed by Shostakovich’s satirical update, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk (from 12 April). For good measure, Kit Monkman has made a fluidly poetic film version, opening in late March, to add to the growing catalogue of movie Macbeths.I suspect there is an element of chance to this profusion of Macbeths. At the same time, there is clearly something about the play that speaks to us urgently today.

After starring in Lady Macbeth, the Oxford-born actor has hopped from job to job, been taught to punch by The Rock and cast in a John Le Carré miniseriesFlorence Pugh is listing her pinch-me highlights of 2017. Where to start? There was the taxi ride in Los Angeles, when she picked up an email saying that Richard Eyre wanted her for Cordelia in his BBC Two film, opposite Anthony Hopkins’ King Lear. (“My Uber driver was giving me funny looks because I was squealing.”) Or the time Dwayne Johnson showed her how to throw a punch on the set of Fighting with My Family, Stephen Merchant’s upcoming comedy-drama about the Norfolk-raised WWE fighter Paige. Oh, and that breakfast with director Park Chan-wook, who subsequently cast her in the lead of a six-part BBC miniseries of John Le Carré’s The Little Drummer Girl that is being made by the team behind The Night Manager.“I’ve had a few whoppers of experiences recently,” Pugh says, breaking into a throaty laugh down the phone.

As a new report reveals the dire financial straits being faced by literary novelists, we investigate how these bleak conditions arose and what can be done to help the writers, regarded by some as thoroughbreds and by others as ghosts of Christmas past. We also catch up with Edward St Aubyn, one of a series of top novelists hired to reimagine Shakespeare’s plays for the 21st century. Perhaps not surprisingly for a writer whose name-making Melrose novels centred on his own monstrous father, he chose King Lear as his subject. In a Guardian book club event chaired by John Mullan, he introduces Dunbar, the autocratic head of an international media corporation who has recently been ousted by his family. Continue reading...
