Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank



Welcome to Globe Education’s online exploration of Macbeth for Playing Shakespeare!

Discover more about Shakespeare’s dark tragedy with unique resources on language, character, themes and performance.

You can't forget that at the end of the day Shakespeare's plays were written to be performed and that's where the magic really happens. But even if you didn’t see this production at the Globe, you can still have a look at some of the pictures, videos and interviews taken throughout rehearsals. We hope they’ll give you a feel of how this production of Macbeth came together as a whole. The Character profile pages and Text in Performance folders will be frequently updated with new images and interviews, so be sure to check back regularly.

Enjoy, and let us know what you think!
