We started our work on Shakespeare’s Macbeth this week and it is proving to be a real stimulus for excellent drama and writing.
Below are some powerful phrases taken from the writing, inspired by our dramatization of the witches:
The evil that surrounds her, silences happiness and withers beauty.
Her face is so long it looks like it is melting and falling off.
Standing in a shadow makes her almost invisible clothes, blacker than the dark of night.
Her whispers ring in your ears as you walk home.
Her hair is fine as spiders’ webs, knotty and greasy.
We are really enjoying this work and looking forward to the next part of the play ……..
