On Wednesday 4th October 2017 (7-8pm) at Ormskirk School, lecturers Dr Kate O’Leary and David Rice from the University of Liverpool will be delivering a lecture on Macbeth. Macbeth may well be Shakespeare's most disturbing play. It is haunted by witches, ghosts, apparitions, madness, murder and suicide. In this talk, they will discuss the obsession with witchcraft and the nature of kingship in Shakespeare's day and consider what really haunts the play...

This is not a school event, Ormskirk School is acting as a community venue. Pupils are welcome to attend, but must be supervised by parents/carers at the lecture.
