Macbeth: Read, Watch, Perform



A Wealth of Resources


Melanie Whitely, a high school teacher from St Louis, MO, enjoys teaching Macbeth not only because her students get so into the exciting elements of the supernatural, the consequences of violence, and the shifting relationships and loyalties; but also because there are so many different interpretations of this popular play to study and discuss to inform students' performance choices when they eventually put the play on its feet.

"My students get really into the supernatural, blood and guts, and relationships - how this can relate to their own life."
