Double, Double Toil and Trouble

December 10, 2018


Seeking to foster wide-ranging conversations for her Shakespeare class this semester, Professor Helga Duncan partnered with a sophomore class at Brockton High School. Together, students from BHS and Stonehill studied Macbeth as they explored the relevance of Shakespeare to education and life today. The class culminated with Brockton students, assisted/guided by Stonehill students, performing lines by the three witches who predict Macbeth’s future. “Both sets of students immersed themselves in the play, getting under the skin of the characters and grappling with the issues. It was a wonderful collaboration,” notes Professor Duncan. Performances took place December 5 in the McCarthy Auditorium, May building.
