I found this a very interesting and useful activity to work with teenagers and make Shakespeare available to them. Since I'm not a native speaker, I'd like to have an audio file with the speeches of both Lord and Lady Macbeth. Could you please tell me how to access them? Many thanks.

Dear Aneleter - the audio for Macbeth and Lady Macbeth should now be accessible.
Apologies for the inconvenience,
