See Hamlet and Lady Macbeth together on stage, two Shakespearean icons who struggle to find meaning to their existence in modern world that refuses to see them as they were. A romp through the peculiar minds of two of Shakespeare’s greatest characters. “Fascinating! Deliciously clever! Cronin is a delightful combination of cheeky, vulnerable and proud, whilst McIlvaine’s anguish and yearning for her dead child is hauntingly beautiful to watch. Spirit of the Dane is wise, funny, clever and will leave you pondering the meaning of these fictional characters and their stories in ways you never have before. Maybe if all English and drama were taught like this in school we’d all have ended up going on to study and enjoy more Shakespeare.” Broadwaybaby.com, Edinburgh Festival 2017
