A brief evening visit to Birnam, near Dunkeld, brought me as close to Macbeth as I’m ever likely to be.
Shakespeare and I were never close friends at school: he was dry, boring and difficult to understand. “(N)ever close friends”? I hated him! No amount of telling me that he was a genius was sufficient for me to allow him into my circle.
But last night I laughed so much at Mr and Mrs Macbeth.
Thank you, Will, for yielding this brilliant cutting.
