MACBETH SKITS

  • Writers can start writing/meeting right away; finish the play on your own during the break. Producer/Director and Writers should also finish the play during the break. Discussions can occur on the wiki (Projects section, your block, discussion forum tab) or on your own page you create. Use the "Projects" section in left sidebar at the top to enter your own private online area. You can post a script there for your class to read.
  • Parameters: 10-20 minutes (max). You can film it or perform it live. If filmed, it should be in a format that we can watch in class (DVD, CD, Youtube)
  • The group below will be organizing and evaluating all class members. You may meet in class to discuss a rubric of expectations for your classmates.
  • Scripts (writers) should be finished by first or second week of January so your classmates can work on memorizing lines. Scripts need to be submitted to me or posted on the Projects page for your block.
  • Due: January 31, 2012

Watch Rupert Goold's adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth in its entirety: live streaming video of Sir Patrick Stewart (a.k.a. Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: Next Generation! and Xavier from X-Men) in an adaptation of Macbeth (be warned...this is a very bloody version and might make your stomach turn. Industrial setting, scary, eerie and very dark). Link is HERE to watch. THOUGH ENTERTAINING, THE DIRECTOR HAS TAKEN LIBERTY WITH PLOT SO DO NOT WATCH THIS VERSION THINKING IT IS TRUE TO THE ORIGINAL.
