Macbeth at The National this February half-term promises to be a bold retelling of the dark and brooding Scottish Play
Shakespeare's Macbeth should be familiar to GCSE students of English Literature and Drama. The play is set in Scotland, where three witches entreat Macbeth with a prophesy that he will become King of Scotland. Alongside his scheming and ambitious wife, Macbeth embarks upon a murderous journey to become and remain King. As he descends into homicidal madness, along with the growing insanity of the menacing Lady Macbeth, an army is approaching to attack the house of Macbeth.
Macbeth is set to be adapted and directed for younger audiences by Justin Audibert and will best suit those of middle-school age from 13-16 years. The cast will include Tripti Tripuraneni, Nana Amoo-Gottfried, Jay Saighal, Madeleine Appiah, Ronak Pattani, Kayla Meikle and Ashley Gurlach. It promises to be a fresh and fun adaptation of the play which must not be named and should complement the school English and Drama syllabuses.
Suitable for 13yrs+
