Role Macbeth
Director Michael Boyd
RSC
Jonathan Slinger led the Royal Shakespeare Company ensemble in Macbeth, the first new production at the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Directed by Michael Boyd, artistic director of the RSC, Jonathan’s Macbeth is a peroxide blonde who slips easily in the psychopathic mould as the play progresses.

Reviews

The best main stage RSC Macbeth since Jonathan Pryce’s...Jonathan Slinger is a sly, edgy and psychotic Macbeth." Michael Coveney
The Stage

Jonathan Slinger oozes menace. This is strongest when he smiles; his grin is chillingly empty. Henry Hitchings
The Evening Standard

A berserk, snickering slaughterer who is prey to nightmarish fantasies: most sensationally when he imagines Banquo's ghost slitting his throat. Michael Billington
The Guardian

Once Slinger gets going with the serial killing he is horribly compelling. Charles Spencer
The Telegraph
