PLE – 10y1 – Home learning due Monday 21 July

Using your understanding of the extract, explain how the following lines might be performed.

Consider: actions, positioning, movement, voice, gesture, facial expression

ACT III SCENE III A park near the palace.
[Enter Three Murderers]
First Murderer But who did bid thee join with us?
Third Murderer Macbeth.
Second Murderer He needs not our mistrust, since he delivers
Our offices and what we have to do
To the direction just.
First Murderer Then stand with us.
The west yet glimmers with some streaks of day:
Now spurs the lated traveller apace
To gain the timely inn; and near approaches
The subject of our watch.
Third Murderer Hark! I hear horses.

I’ve put a link to the No Fear Shakespeare version here so you can use this to help you. Remember that you will need to quote from the original text. http://nfs.sparknotes.com/macbeth/page_102.html

An independent enquirer working at:
Grade E will show a basic understanding of performance techniques and make limited reference to the text.
Grade D will show occasional understanding of effectiveness of performance techniques and make some references to the text.
Grade C will show a sound understanding of the effectiveness of performance techniques and give clear references to the text to support response.
