Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank is Shakespeare’s Globe flagship project for secondary schools in London and Birmingham.
Year 6 – Year 13 students can get free or heavily discounted tickets to a production designed especially for young people and performed in the open air Globe Theatre.
Teacher Continuing Professional Development
Each year the project gives free tickets to students – they come to the Globe Theatre to see a full-scale Shakespeare production, created specifically for young people. In 2019, our 13th Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank production played to over 27,000 schoolchildren, over 18,000 of whom came for free.
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.

2021: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank performances in 2021 for state schools in London and Birmingham will now take place 28 September – 13 October.
State schools in London and Birmingham can now apply for free tickets using our online form.
Independent schools and state schools outside London and Birmingham can get £15 seated tickets or £5 Yard tickets (from September) to performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream during the Summer 2021 season (subject to availability).
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 and Juliet, Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. You can find links to all of the individual websites below.
