Pete's most recent stage roll was Macbeth, a major critical and box office success which opened at Bristol Old Vic on 10 October 1997 and toured the UK.

The Guardian on Macbeth ... "Postlethwaite gives a towering performance...he grows in stature and sensitivity as he diminishes in hope... "

The Independent on Macbeth... "Postlethwaite's performance lifts off with the stately grace of an Atlas rocket...megawatt glare of talent...the powerful depth and complexity of emotion that Postlethwaite can project through the close up of the movie camera transfer to the stage with rolling resonance...a must-see.."
