On Thursday 22nd March 2018 and Monday 26th March 2018, the English Department organised a live performance of Macbeth and Jekyll and Hyde from The Manchester Actors Company, in preparation for the Year 11 English Literature GCSE Exam. It brought the texts to life in front of their very eyes, and all were engaged and passionate about what they saw.
The Performance lasted 90 minutes and comprised of a 60-minute performance followed by a 30-minute Q&A session, where the characters responded in role using quotes and giving advice regarding exam hints and tips.
All students found the session incredibly helpful and were even able to answer questions regarding helpful revision techniques to carry forward into their exams. The performers commented on the exemplary behaviour of all students and said that we were the best-behaved audience that they had ever had! They especially loved their interaction during important parts of the play!
Well done, Year 11!
