Prep Thespians Discover Macbeth
29 November 2013
Year 6 girls were once again treated to an outstanding Young Shakespeare Theatre Company workshop and performance of one of the most dark and powerful of the bard's tragedies.
Our 'would be' thespians took on a variety of roles, assisting the scheming Lady Macbeth and her ambitious husband in their treachery. The girls participated throughout the retelling, listening carefully to extracts from the play and the actors' narrative and contributing to the action, dialogue and a range of 'special effects' ranging from the wild sounds of the opening scene on the heath to a slow motion battle after 'Birnam Wood do come to Dunsinane'.
