Legal Week promotes mock trial of Macbeth to raise money for Shakespeare Schools Festival

March 6, 2015

Legal Week has teamed up with Shakespeare Schools Festival to promote a star-studded event to raise money for the charity, which is supported by the Incisive Media Foundation.

Legalweek.com promoted the event by writing a news story followed up by an Q&A interview with top QC Dinah Rose, who is taking part in a mock trial of Shakespeare’s iconic character Macbeth along with Jeremy Paxman and three other QCs.

The Dinah Rose interview generated more than 1,000 page impressions in the first two hours of publication, putting it on course to be one of the best-read articles of 2015 so far.

Rose will join John Kelsey-Fry QC, Jonathan Laidlaw QC and Ian Winter QC in the trial, where Macbeth and key witnesses will be cross-examined over the murder of King Duncan.

The QCs will star alongside Shakespearean actors David Oakes and Hayden Gwynn and a 12-strong jury headed by journalist Jeremy Paxman.

Dramatist and novelist Jonathan Myerson wrote the witness statements and worked on plot development. The show will take place at the Noel Coward Theatre in London on 8 March.

Shakespeare Schools Festival is the UK’s largest youth drama festival, and works with more than 1,000 schools and 150 professional theatres.

It provides the tools, support and guidance necessary to enable schools to stage their own Shakespeare productions in front of a paying audience.
