Exploring Macbeth with the Combat Veteran Players
On Monday our 4th Form were fortunate enough to receive a wonderful workshop on Macbeth from members of the Combat Veteran Players. They are an award-winning Shakespearean theatre company comprised entirely of ex-Service members who have been living with and overcoming mental trauma, physical injury, and/or additional transitional difficulty. The workshop took the boys though the plot of Macbeth and resulted in them performing extracts from Act 3 Scene 4, when Banquo's ghost appears before Macbeth at his banquet. There were some fantastic performances and they all coped very well with the Shakespearean text.
