Yr 11 Theatre Trip

Yr 11 have already been out on a trip today, their second day back! Students and members of the English Faculty travelled to north London's Hackney Empire to see Macbeth  - Directed by Susie McKenna. 


Following a two week performance at the internationally renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Hackney Empire’s new Graduate Theatre Company, TWIST, returned to London to perform their first production, a 21st Century take on Macbeth – Shakespeare meets Channel 4’s Empire with music, dance and a lot of attitude.

The feedback was very positive. 'Incredibly clever and well-conceived and executed', 'Fresh energy… spine-tingling, intimate vocals’, 

'Shakespeare would love it!', 

‘This is exceptionally creative, political storytelling, which comes to life with youthful energy.'

Thank you to the English staff for organising the event.
