We were delighted to welcome the Young Shakespeare Company back to the school to work with the whole of Year 7. Students took part in a series of creative and engaging workshops in the morning where they analysed Shakespeare’s use of language, learnt lines and took on some of the parts to ‘Macbeth’.
In the afternoon, they then had the opportunity to watch a highly engaging, modern twist on the Scottish play. The performance was incredibly entertaining with the actors racing around the audience for fight scenes. The students also had the chance at the end to ask the actors a range of questions on the play itself, their own acting experience and the choices the Company made for their production – including the decision to cast Macbeth with a female actor.
