Superlative Shakespeare

A truly remarkable and inspiring woman with whom I’ve worked on the Open Britain/People’s Vote campaign is also a secondary school drama teacher, Sarah O’Keefe.  At the end of November she asked me to photograph the dress rehearsal of Macbeth with students from her Saint Union Catholic School in Highgate, north London.  I’ve seen a fair number of school performances in my time, but I have to say that the Macbeth I had the privilege to photograph was incredible — the young women I witnessed were as passionate and professional as anyone I’ve seen at the National.  Really!
