Young Stagers are proud to present Macbeth by William Shakespeare, adapted by Neil Richards
Performed by kind permission of BBC Teach School Radio.

Shakespeare’s tragic tale of murder, mystery and witchcraft. Capturing all the drama, dastardly deeds and intrigue – interweaving it with original songs covering styles ranging from haunting Scottish laments, to rap, to rousing battle anthems. This is an innovative reimagining of ‘The Scottish Play’, especially adapted for young performers.

Shakespeare set Macbeth in 11th century Scotland. Macbeth is the Thane of Glamis, a successful soldier and loyal to King Duncan. However, he is returning from battle with his comrade Banquo when they meet three strange creatures on a heath - the Weird Sisters - who prophesy that Macbeth will become first Thane of Cawdor and later King of Scotland. When the first part of the prophecy comes true Macbeth becomes ambitious for power...and his wife, Lady Macbeth, is determined he should do whatever is necessary to seize the crown!
