Shakespeare for GCSE: Mastering Macbeth

This two-day course will take you through the core speeches in Macbeth, in an intensive revision session brought to life by professional actors. Shakespeare never intended for his plays to be read, so they can be a real challenge to learn if you only encounter them on a page. This course will use performance to bring to life the magic of Shakespeare's Macbeth and help you to revise for your GCSE course in a way that is fun and easy to understand.

This course will involve a mixture of presentations by the course tutor, group discussions, interactive exercises and live performance of key speeches. You will be able to use these performances to analyse key themes and literary devices.

You can expect to:

- Gain an understanding of the key speeches within the play

- Examine literary devices in performance

- Explore the historical and social context of Macbeth

Do I need anything for the course?

- A copy of Macbeth

- Note taking materials

Spaces are limited so early booking is encouraged

Bookings will close at 5pm on Wednesday 29 March 2023 or when the course reaches full capacity

For everyone aged 14-17, or those currently studying Macbeth for their GCSEs.
