William Shakespeare’s Play of the Month:...

This year the English Faculty will be honouring William Shakespeare by promoting his plays each month in the BMS newsletter.

With October being the spooky month of Halloween, it seems appropriate to start with Macbeth. Full of deception, witchcraft, ghosts, tragedy and paranoia, Macbeth is undoubtedly one of Shakespeare’s most famous and well-known plays. Set in Scotland, Macbeth is the story of a Scottish Thane who meets three witches who prophesied that he will be King. This both troubles and excites the ambitious lord, who has to decide whether to wait to see what fate will bring, or take action. To avoid plot spoilers for our Bushey Meads students who will study this play…we’ll invite you to read the play HERE.

You might like to find out why actors will only ever call this text ‘the Scottish play.’

Enjoy!
