About the Resource

A compact and moderately modernised version of Shakespeare’s tragic play which still retains the character names, symbolic imagery and powerful themes of the original text. The compelling story of the greed and downfall of Macbeth and his ambitious wife is told in full, but also allows room for individual interpretation. Simple to stage, clear and concise, it’s an excellent resource for both literacy work and performance and would serve as an ideal introduction to Shakespeare.

The script is supplied as a pdf document. For a sample, click here

About the Author

Alison Chaplin is a qualified drama teacher, a writer and an experienced youth theatre director. She mostly writes plays for children to read and perform. Because she is still a big kid herself, she likes to write plays which are funny. But she has also written some serious plays too. She doesn't really have a favourite play, although her Christmas play - The Xmas Factor - makes her laugh a lot.

 She has written over 20 plays and enjoys hearing about them being performed, and what young actors liked about their performances.

 When she’s not writing plays, Alison is the manager of Arts On The Move, a company providing lovely creative support for schools, actors, youth groups and drama practitioners.  

 Alison's favourite colour is bright pink. Her favourite food is potatoes. Her favourite football team is Manchester City. She enjoys watching TV, reading and going to Zumba classes.
