A potential audience of over 220,000 students are registered to watch our broadcast of Macbeth on 26 April.

The play will be broadcast to schools around the country on 26 April, along with student activities and a live Q&A with our actors.

Secondary schools around the country are preparing for our free broadcast of Macbeth on 26 April. 

Students will see the play and take part in activities and live Q&As with the actors. To make the play more accessible, it is split into three parts for this performance, with a BSL interpreted version available for students with hearing impairments.

Schools can also book a special one-hour introductory session to the play, where one of our Education Associate Practitioners will be joined by actors to explore key scenes, themes and characters ahead of the broadcast.

The broadcast will follow the Macbeth Live Lesson on 20 April, where schools get to go behind the scenes of the show to see how actors approach the text. Over 250 schools have registered to take part, bringing the lesson to a potential audience of over 30,000 young people.

Registration for the Live Lesson has now closed, but schools can register for the broadcast until Thursday 12 April.
