Workshop: Othello 15+ years

Book Now

Take a fresh approach to studying Othello with this practical exploration of the play, underpinned by the Globe’s transformational anti-racist approach to Shakespeare, in Shakespeare’s original performance space. 

Othello examines themes of love, revenge and race. Structured around Iago’s evil machinations, the play draws its audience into a deadly game of manipulation that explores how prejudice, power and control function in society. The play also has rich language exploring relationships, love and the power of words. This is your chance to explore it in the unique surroundings of the Globe Theatre. 

Designed for students studying Shakespeare or English Literature, this session sees Globe practitioners and participants explore the machinations of jealousy, bringing it to life through active discussion and practical drama 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 students. 

Workshops will be led by one of the Globe’s highly experienced practitioners who include actors, teachers and directors.  

‘O, beware, my lord, of jealousy: 
It is the green-eyed monster’
