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 four 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.

“A very interesting, visual and energetic take on ‘Macbeth’.  The pupils loved all aspects.  An excellent learning tool!”

Teacher, The Chatham and Clarendon House Grammar School

“It has made me view Shakespeare in a different way.  It has made the concept of studying Shakespeare more appealing for the future.”

Year 11 student, The Harvey Grammar School
