Macbeth - Blood will have Blood tour

Contender Charlie, China Plate and Warwick Arts Centre present


Following a hugely successful tour in spring 2013, Contender Charlie, China Plate and Warwick Arts Centre once again join forces to present this immersive and unforgettable reimagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth for children aged 9 to 13.

‘I have never seen staff and pupils so enthusiastic and appreciative. A brilliant experience... Shakespeare will never be the same again!’
Charles Thorpe
Headteacher, Keresley Grange Primary School, Coventry

A macabre porter invites us into Macbeth’s castle, taking us right into the dark heart of Shakespeare’s play. Razor sharp storytelling, eerie projections and a heart-stopping soundtrack take us on an immersive, break-neck journey through the blood-soaked world of Macbeth.

‘Absolutely fantastic! Pupils were engrossed! They loved the immersive nature of the production – being right at the heart of it.’

Reinvented for young audiences, Macbeth – Blood Will Have Blood is an accessible and unforgettable introduction to Shakespeare’s shocking story of ambition, greed and the abuse of power.

‘Open mouthed. Even the most fidgety, hard to reach pupils were immersed and in the moment. You took them with you 100% and left them wanting more.’

Includes performance, workshop, CPD and online resources

Each performance and workshop is available for 100 of your KS2 & KS3 students from Years 5 & 6 (primary) & 7 (secondary)

‘The experience had a huge impact on motivation – particularly with boys. They have certainly developed a greater vocabulary particularly in terms of feelings/character traits. The speaking and listening opportunities have been fantastic.’
Teacher – Frederick Bird Primary School, Coventry

Ages 9-13 years. PSHE, English, Drama, SEAL
