Subject: Doubling in Macbeth
In my high school classroom, we have been reading and "performing"
Macbeth, with students taking turns with the parts. This class was
assigned to read at home before we began, so they came in looking for
certain parts to be "theirs"--they also asked me to read Duncan, so
perhaps they have interest in my death!
But one instance of doubling came up quite naturally--the three girls
who volunteered to read the 3 witches also decided to read the three
murderers. Can anyone on the list tell me of productions that might
have used this instance of doubling? It seems quite logical now that
we've done it, and it was my students who felt it a natural step.
