Shakespeare on Trial is a play about modern day children challenging the relevance of Shakespeare today.
The play shows William Shakespeare as a young child learning at school and aspiring to invent new words and phrases that many of us use daily. It shows extracts of his plays from Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and all the King Henrys and Richards, containing all the tragedy, comedy, villains and heroes we enjoy today. It also highlights Elizabethan times and how theatre brought everyone together as a sense of occasion.
The Form 2 pupils gave their parents a wonderful afternoon of entertainment and worked hard throughout the process.
