Schools - Workshops

"There was clear focus on the dramatic elements of the play, but rooted in the text itself, which was perfect for the GCSE candidates.” Jonathan Parsons, Tormead School.

Whether you're studying Shakespeare, John Ford or JB Priestley, our bespoke practical workshops will get your students up on their feet experiencing these wonderful plays in the spirit they were created. Our team of professional actors and experienced facilitators deliver our workshops bringing a range of techniques from the 'rehearsal room' to explore themes, characters, scenarios and use of language.
