Living With Lady Macbeth by Rob John


The cast has a lot of fun, as does the audience
— Philip Horton, Bath Chronicle

Everybody thinks Lily Morgan is very ordinary and rather dull. They are all wrong. 

As Lily prepares to audition for the part of Lady Macbeth in the school’s forthcoming production, she has a fight on her hands. The beautiful and popular Stephanie Boyce has been comfortably in the limelight for years and doesn't believe that someone as stereotypically "reliable" and "nice" as Lily stands a chance of getting in her way. But not only does Lily have to convince the entire school of her talents, but also her unimaginative boyfriend and her preoccupied mother, who are both fond of Lily but can't understand her fatal attraction to the Scottish play. Only Lily's best friend, Mon, stands by her and begins to realise the lengths Lily is willing to go to in order to be heard...

Two exceedingly talented casts from Next Stage Youth perform on alternate nights, giving two separate takes on this wonderful study of power, ambition and one girl's battle to challenge everybody's expectations.
