Our flagship project for secondary and post-16 further education students

Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank is Shakespeare’s Globe flagship project for schools in London and Birmingham.

As part of the project, each year, 20,000 free tickets are given to students to see a full-scale Shakespeare production, created specifically for young people, here at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Over the past ten years, to work alongside these productions or on their own, we’ve created a wealth of teaching resource websites for individual Shakespeare plays. These include the key curriculum titles Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet, Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. You can find links to all of the individual websites below.

Playing Shakespeare is supported by Deutsche Bank as part of Born to Be – a youth engagement programme which is committed to helping young people reach their full potential.
