English: The Macbeth Play

The pupils of Secondary 3 performed a play of Macbeth by Shakespeare on the 19th of June at 12:15 in the Concert Hall.

Most of Shakespeare’s words were chosen to be spoken or heard, not to be read and deadened behind a desk. This is the reason why Ms. Tullis organised this play: to let the students know about Shakespeare while they were practising Oral English and Drama skills.

English: The Macbeth Play

The main character is Macbeth; he is a brave soldier but also weak, greedy and ambitious. Another main character is Lady Macbeth, she is cunning, evil, manipulative and over-ambitious.

At the beginning of the play, Macbeth is a brave and loyal thane of king Duncan. After hearing a prophecy that he will become king himself, Macbeth is overcome by ambition and greed. Bolstered by prophecy and his wife’s encouragement, he kills king Duncan and takes the throne.
