Macbeth

Ideally suited for Years 9,10 or 11
Performance length: 60 minutes followed by a 30 minute workshop
Audience number: approximately 150
Venue: ideally school hall with the audience on three sides

Vibrant language and physical theatre chart the devastating effect that one act of evil can have on an otherwise honourable and loyal man – we see how the ripples of that act spread to destroy both Macbeth himself and all those for whom he cared. As their actions are challenged by a third character who also brings the wider world of the play to life, Macbeth and his wife are seen to become ever more prey to the devastating horrors they have unleashed as they move inevitably towards their doom.

 

Very animated and lively with lots of enthusiasm and good audience participation. It was amazing!

Year 11 student, John Hampden Grammar School

The modern twist appealed to the teenage audience and the great use of the text mixed with modern language made it accessible to all.  It was a fantastic production and excellent adaptation of the play.
