Fair, not foul...

Students of La Martiniere for Boys enact a scene from Macbeth. The curtain rose with the entry of the three witches of the Shakespearean play. From perpetrating the deadly actions that follow to instigating Macbeth into committing a heinous crime, the students played their roles to perfection. The eerie background score and excellent set complemented the play perfectly.  The two protagonists, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, left the audience spellbound. While the former was haunted by the guilt of his actions, the latter was instrumental in sowing the seeds of crime in her husband’s mind. “There are different shades to Lady Macbeth’s personality. Enacting this complex character on stage was a tough challenge for me,” said Ahon Gooptu, a Class XII student. Principal John Rafi said: “Macbeth is not an easy play to stage but the boys worked on their diction and acting skills to come up with this production. They had been practising for the past two months and the play was staged with the help of our teachers.” Picture by Koushik Saha
