As the Crow Flies is a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and explores the themes of ambition, consequences and identity. It delves into the current sporting culture and delivers a warning that if something is too good to be true, it normally is. The play is an Australian Gothic tale that brings together sport and spirits. What could be more perfect for secondary school students?
“The modern context, sporting through-line and intertextual references to supernatural tropes make this an excellent resource for our Year 10 course. I believe this text will resonate with students, but I also like that it is easily adaptable to a range of teaching and learning contexts.”
