“…Unnatural deeds do breed unnatural troubles”
Macbeth is overthrown.
In the aftermath of the war a team of International Commissioners confront the disturbing reality of life in the world for the victims of the power struggle. Thousands flee for the borders. Others are detained in holding areas.
The Commissioners gain access to a holding area. A derelict building where they find three children: casualties who are chained, detained, abandoned at play. They play out the nightmare of the world of Macbeth.
What is the world of Macbeth? What has happened to the children in the world? How must it be changed?
Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a play of its time and for all times. 'Living with Macbeth' is a full day, participatory TIE Programme, designed for secondary school students. In the course of their day with the Company the students will explore the real matter of Shakespeare’s play. Through their role as commissioners investigating the situation of ordinary people in extraordinary times, the world of Macbeth and its relationship to our world, will be made accessible, relevant and meaningful for them.
