Macbeth LIVE

E-mail Print PDF

Back in February a group of Year 9 and 10 students had the opportunity to see the iconic Shakespeare play 'Macbeth' live on stage at the Broadway Theatre.

MacbethWatching the play live was exceedingly useful, particularly as a Year 10 student who is studying Macbeth for GCSE.  It is certainly a play that I will not forget anytime soon.  Prior to watching the play, I was relatively sceptical as Macbeth is considered a confusing piece of text to read, I wondered how the play would be brought to life in a way that was comprehensible for the audience.

I was pleasantly surprised! The actors brought such vigour and personality to their performances that I had no trouble piecing the storyline together. The stage was simplistically small but effective, creating a sense of intimacy between the actors and the audience.

Personally, my favourite character was Lady Macbeth, and I must say that the actress playing her did exceptionally well.  I felt the manipulation; I felt the vulnerability and the deviousness. Everything about her character mirrored the way Shakespeare wrote her.

Overall, Macbeth was a fantastic experience.  Students and teachers alike were engaged by the talent of the performers, and it was definitely spoken about long after it finished. We were grateful to have been given this opportunity.
