English Trip to Macbeth

Love.  War.  Witchcraft.  Murder.  Madness.

How else would you end the term? On Friday 19th October 2018, the English department took Key Stage 4 students to see Macbeth performed live on stage in East London.

The energetic performance of Shakespeare’s timeless production consolidated the understanding of the students, with many mouthing the key quotes as they were delivered on stage. The artistic performance saw the minor character, ‘Porter’ take a starring role for his short scene and one in which the students will never forget. The power of the stage soliloquy cemented the intentions of Lady Macbeth and left the students in no doubt, the intention of Shakespeare when devising the play.
