"I love how the production plays with how much the Weird Sisters manipulate certain events, how involved they are. They're not bad; they're just isolated from society, because they are women (which is important), and they are desolate and grieving and have lost lots of things."
As we enter performances, Nadia discusses the modern relevance of the play, the role of the Porter, and playing a 'midnight hag' at the midnight matinee.
"The Porter is an extraordinary character I find, and I think the scene comes at such an inappropriate point in the play and I've definitely taken advantage of that."
In her first interview, Nadia discusses her initial impressions of the play and her character of the Porter, and working with director Iqbal Khan.
