Key stage 3
"I knew it would be wonderful, to bring year 9 students to the Globe, a place I love and value. What I wasn't sure of was what the workshop would entail - it surpassed expectations!"
The King's School, Harpenden
Workshop: Shakespeare's Language, Shakespeare's Stage
A 90 minute session led by one of our Practitioners, including:
- A half hour guided visit to the theatre.
- A one hour workshop based on any Shakespeare play of your choice.
In this session, students approach Shakespeare’s plays through the context of the Globe playhouse. Through practical exploration, students are encouraged to develop an understanding of Shakespeare’s characters and stories, and to engage with the text as a script for performance. This workshop can support national curriculum study of Shakespeare at KS3. Different dramatic techniques are used to explore Shakespeare’s plays and deepen students’ critical understanding.
