A home video of a fifteen year old boy signing Macbeth has won a professional theatre school competition.

Ciaran O’Brien from Fishponds near Bristol, who is deaf, impressed the judges to win a place on a prestigious workshop.

He was spotted after his mum filmed him performing his favourite piece from Macbeth and sent it into the competition.
