Back to Macbeth


William Shakespeare; Adapted by Carl Heap

Oberon Books

“What's done cannot be undone'

Three weird sisters, an eerie prophecy and a lust for power start a spiral of betrayal which has disastrous consequences. 

Primary Classics, produced by the National Theatre's Discover programme, aims to introduce children aged 7 to 11 to Shakespeare. 

This version of Macbeth, adapted and originally directed by Carl Heap, preserves the core of Shakespeare's plot, retains the original language, yet is presented very much with the target age group in mind. Carl Heap's introduction will help readers, teachers and practitioners alike to imagine or produce their own version. 


Carl Heap is a writer-director-actor who has brought to these five Shakespeare adaptations for NT' Discover the experience and insights he gained from working with pre-Shakespearian popular theatre as the founding Artistic Director of the ground-breaking Medieval Players. These are skillful edits rather than translations, offering the complete story in 70 minutes without any narrative bridges, for casts of 5-7 actors.
