Romeo and Juliet Study Session (Ages 15+) 2020

This event has now passed.

My only love sprung from my only hate!

This dynamic three-hour course gives students aged 15+ the chance to delve into Romeo and Juliet to analyse Shakespeare’s use of language and stagecraft.

A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another man in marriage, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families – and while the adults remain almost comically preoccupied with their own affairs, among their children a hidden tragedy begins to unfold.

Designed for students across the world studying Shakespeare or English Literature, this session sees Globe practitioners and participants explore Shakespeare’s most famous love story, bringing it to life with active discussion and practical activities

Encouraging the development of an informed personal response to the play, underpinned by understanding the text’s relationship to the unique performance conditions of the Globe, this course is particularly suitable for GCSE and A-level Literature courses.

ONLINE EVENTS: HOW DO THEY WORK?

A ticket covers one household joining via one device. These online events are designed for young people aged 15+ and will be attended by up to 15 households on the same video meeting. Please ensure you join the meeting five minutes in advance of the event start time.

A link with joining instructions will be emailed to you a day before the event. You will need access to a reliable internet connection and be able to join a Zoom meeting.

Participants are invited to tell us about any access requirements during the booking process; this will enable us to be aware of needs in order to make reasonable adjustments and/or adapt content where possible.

These online events are interactive and fun for all, which means that there are opportunities for the Globe practitioner and the participants to engage directly with each other live.

To make sure that everyone is also safe, young people generally choose to attend the online session alone or in sibling groups, but it is a requirement that an adult must be present and available in the household at all times. Please be aware that no recording or photography will be permitted.

Our staff retain the right to terminate any participant’s connection to the Zoom meeting if an adult is not present on screen or if our Ticketing terms and Community guidelines are not followed.
