NSW Public Schools Drama Company 2022 presents ‘Just Macbeth!’ by Andy Griffiths.
Produced by the NSW Department of Education's Arts Unit in association with Bell Shakespeare and NIDA.
Danny, Andy and Lisa are meant to be studying Shakespeare’s Macbeth, but what happens when they find themselves so immersed in the play that they are actually the play?! Add in some witches, whizz fizz, murder and mayhem and be entertained by Shakespeare’s tragedy in a way that feels delightful and dastardly.
Recommended for secondary and upper primary students, Just Macbeth! is a wonderful introduction to Shakespeare and an innovative way and fun to play with text and performance.
