MACBETH by Ipa Productions
Welcome back to our speaking sessions!
We are all very excited as we are getting ready to see a play on the 28th February 2017. Therefore we are learning about Macbeth, a theatre play by Ipa Productions, through games, songs, oral activities, Quizlets and Kahoots.
Ipa's shows for secondary are mostly based on well-known, literary classics and tend to be adapted musical comedies, performed by professional musical theatre actors. Their aim is to hold the interest of teenagers by offering quality theatre that both they and their teachers will enjoy, and which will keep the audience on the edge of their seats with excitement and laughter!
The play we are going to see begins during a meeting at a sales company. Joe Macbeth, a senior salesman, is trying to negotiate with the employees. He is trying to solve their problems and complaints. Billy Banquo, his assistant, decides to shoot all the employees instead of listening to them. Joe Macbeth is upset about this but Billy tells him that their boss will be very happy.
