At the beginning of November, UNIS Hanoi will be presenting the great Shakespearean tragedy, MacBeth. Directed by Theatre teacher Kristen Twynam-Perkins this production has a cast and crew of over 50 students from grades 9 – 12. Some of whom will be taking the stage for the first time.
This re-imagining of the tragedy takes us to a depression era carnival ‘freak show’ and explores the control that fate has over MacBeth’s decisions and ambition. MacBeth comes across a trio of witches on his way back to Dunsinane who tell him he will be King, from this point they control and guide all his decisions and actions until his tragic end.
Performances are Thursday November 8 and Friday November 9 at 18.30 and Saturday November 10 at 16.00 in the UNIS Hanoi Centre for the Arts. Tickets are 100,000 and are on sale from Monday, October 22 at the Arts Office or during lunch and after school in front of the old canteen.
