#Macbeth - Live & Online

Complete Works Theatre Company


Made Shakespeare accessible.
Teacher - Mount St Joseph's Girls College

It was easy to follow and fast paced, and the explanations from the actors of language features / symbolism were appreciated. It was also great to have the actors share their knowledge and ideas with students – the actors were well informed and generous
Teacher, Goulburn Valley Grammar School

On a bleak Scottish moorland, a whispered prophecy incites an unstoppable chain of events. Three witches rouse the dormant ambition of a brave and gallant soldier, Macbeth; the Thane of Glamis. His wife, Lady Macbeth, lusts after the title of queen. Together, the unstoppable duo plot to murder the King by any means necessary. But as Lady Macbeth’s guilt catches up with her, her husband’s single crime becomes a cascading expedition into unrelenting tyranny. Morality is put under the microscope in William Shakespeare's brilliant examination of human temptation, ambition, and guilt. Macbeth is one of the greatest tragedies ever written and provokes debate and stimulates discussion.

We found the performance really valuable in terms of student learning. They really engaged with the play in a deep and meaningful way, and this was reflected in the understanding they demonstrated in their recent SAC. We really loved the parts of the play
