Drama Cousework - Improvisation In the double period on Monday 1st of October. Our Class had an improvisation workshop of written text. The text was a poem from Norman Maccaig called Old Highland Woman. We were to do different tasks in the workshop, which were the following: * As a single person we had to pretend that we were an old lady in a room, * In threes, we were told to make two neighbours call and check on the old lady, * A scene which was set 20 years before, * A scene that was set when the old lady was 20, we were to do this in fours.

  1. Macbeth – Gains and Losses

    People felt that Macbeth was dressed in "borrowed robes" and therefore could never be a loved and respected king. The Elizabethan audience would have been very aware of this and would have recognised the significance straight away. Shakespeare's language is very deep and meaningful.

  2. Macbeth – Hero or “Hellhound”

    Lady Macbeth also asks for darkness when she says, "come thee thick night, and pull thee in the dunnest smoke of hell." Evil is regularly associated with darkness and these references show that there is an evil side to 'Macbeth' and Lady Macbeth.
