Shakespeare Up Close
“the production was extraordinary… [it] sparked a lots of discussion amongst my students” Oriel High School
20 February - 25 March 2017
“One face, one voice,
one habit and two persons”
Bruised egos, broken hearts, fizzing tensions and fraught encounters. Get tangled up in Shakespeare’s darkest comedy.
In 90 minutes, 6 actors bring Shakespeare’s language to life in a feisty and fast-paced production.
Suitable for everyone aged 11+
The production is available in two education packages:
Option 1 At your school
20 FEB – 10 MARCH 2017
Our actors will bring a technically paired down version of the production to your school hall, for up to 150 students seated in the round.
The production is immediately followed by a 30 minute workshop led by the actors which allows students the opportunity to
explore production ideas and to re-direct key moments in the play to consider how the choices actors make affect the audience.
A two hour slot in the school hall is required for the performance and workshop, plus 1 hour set up time.
Option 2 At the Orange Tree Theatre
18 MARCH – 25 MARCH 2017
Bold directorial and design choices make it ideal for drama students needing to review live performances. Clear storytelling
makes it perfect for students reading the text in class, at any stage of their study.
Teachers must accompany students to the performance. Teacher tickets are free.
Tue, Wed, Fri 10.30am & 2.00pm Tickets £7
Monday 20 March 2.00pm & 7.30pm Tickets £7 & £12

A teacher’s pack filled with practical tasks which unlock Shakespeare’s language and illuminate the context of the play, along with digital resources that give students a glimpse into the rehearsal process will be available when booking either option.
