Once again we were treated to a spectacular production of one of Shakespeare’s most famous works. The actors really brought Macbeth to life, and even had year 10 and 11 students laughing out loud at the Porter’s scene! Students and staff alike were ‘rapt withal’ from start to finish. Thank you.

‘I was absolutely blown away by your Macbeth performance last Friday’    Leonie Dedat, Pimlico Academy 2019

Something wicked this way comes…

Macbeth is a play of contrasts: good/evil, light/darkness, thought/action, witchcraft/divinity, appearance/reality. These contrasts are examined in this production, in which we follow Macbeth’s inexorable decline as he treads, in the Porter’s words, “the primrose way to the everlasting bonfire”. A fascinating examination of the main themes of Shakespeare’s darkest play.
