Epic workshops set stage for Macbeth

SECONDARY school pupils are taking part in a William Shakespeare workshop prior to watching one of his most popular plays, Macbeth.

The pupils from Musselburgh Grammar, North Berwick High School and Dunbar Grammar are working with the council’s drama teachers to explore character and motivation before watching the new production at the Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh.

Icarus Theatre Collective, last seen at Brunton Theatre in April 2010, is returning this month with its production of the epic tragedy. Tickets are available on 0131-665 2240 or online at www.bruntontheatre.co.uk
