The American Drama Group Europe has created an exciting new production of one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, Macbeth. The group has toured to over twenty countries on three continents, in venues from a plantation house in Atlanta to Windsor Castle, from major theatres in Tokyo and Berlin, to palaces in Verona and Stockholm. More locally, they have performed throughout Switzerland, including at the Château de Chillon.
They have agreed to perform Macbeth for one night only at ISL. This is an excellent chance for students to see one of the set texts from the English curriculum brought to life, and more broadly for our students to see high quality contemporary theatre without having to travel farther than school.
The tickets cost CHF 20 for students. The adult price is CHF 40. Tickets are available through https://www.ticketor.com/islausanne/.
Please note: Years 9 to 11 students need not book tickets as they have seats already reserved – we expect all these students to attend.
Refreshments, including drinks, hotdogs and baked goods will be served before the performance and during the interval in aid of Cecily’s Fund – a grass-roots charitable foundation that supports and educates vulnerable children in Kitwe, Zambia.
Please contact Mr Lloyd if you have any questions. We are looking forward to an engaging interpretation of this entertaining tragedy.
Jeremy Lloyd, on behalf of the ISL English Department
