David Harewood's challenge for Shakespeare teenagers


Actor David Harewood has five days to take a group of inner city teenagers from Birmingham and turn them into Shakespearean actors.

David, currently starring in the hit television drama Homeland, returns to his old school to select his cast and prepare for a final showcase performance in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Can he inspire them to put on a passionate and polished production from one of the Bard's greatest works?

Macbeth, the Movie Star... and Me is broadcast on Sunday, 22 April at 22:25 on BBC One West Midlands and nationwide for seven days thereafter on the iPlayer.
