Something wicked this way comes – Fifth Form Macbeth Theatre Trip

 

This week the Fifth Form had the opportunity to witness some real double double toil and trouble as they headed to Chichester Festival Theatre to see their GCSE Literature set text ‘Macbeth’.

The play took place on an innovative stage which allowed the key scenes to involve wild multimedia backdrops, atmospheric sound and even a live fire for the epic witch scene as they cast their spell. Beth S said:

“The way that symbolism was used really helped me to understand its importance in the text.”

Macbeth is studied by all of the Fifth Form and this trip helps students to further their appreciation of how the play works on stage. Charlotte N said:

“The presentation of the witches was really innovative, especially in the final scene.”
