Macbeth Livestream

Macbeth LivestreamOn Thursday 26th April, 129 Year 10 students were given the opportunity to watch the latest RSC production of Macbeth as it was beamed into school as part of the National Schools’ Broadcast livestreaming event. Students brought pillows and snacks, and relaxed as the show was broadcast directly into the Drama Studio and Fairlie classrooms.

The performance stars Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack, presenting a contemporary reimagining of the Scottish setting. Students enjoyed both the tension created by a large digital clock counting down, and the reimagined witches as little girls dressed in onesies.
