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

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

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 also had the chance to 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 follows last week's Macbeth Live Lesson, where schools went behind the scenes of the show to see how actors approach the text.
