A Shakespearean Story

England, Scotland, Wales

Explore the work of William Shakespeare, with a focus on the depth of character, use of stage craft and innovative language. This interactive workshop will give your class a chance to explore the key difference between Shakespeare’s Comedies, Tragedies and Histories, how he wrote deep three-dimensional characters the audience of the time could relate to, as well as giving you class the opportunity to speak the language.

Your class will…

  • Explore the key differences between Shakespeare’s plays
  • Explore Iambic pentameter, and language created by Shakespeare
  • Explore the complexity of the characters in Shakespeare’s plays
  • Have a great day!

One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!
