Macbeth Trip Success

Is this Y11 revision at a cinema which I see before me?


On Thursday 10th May 2018 at 5.44pm, 68 Year 11 students and 12 members of staff set off on a journey into the Shakespearean era… at Sheffield Vue cinema. As part of the extra revision opportunities offered by the English department, students volunteered their time to watch a live production of Macbeth that was streamed on behalf of The National Theatre Live. Macbeth's monologues were especially dramatic and the wicked witches tirelessly gripped the audience with their manic behaviour and chanting.

Students and accompanying staff felt that the trip was extremely valuable as it allowed them to see characters and key quotes brought to life in front of their very eyes.

A huge well done to those students for the exceptional behaviour displayed in the cinema. The English department wishes you all the best for your forthcoming exams!
