A small cast of multi-roling actors bring Shakespeare’s language to life in a fast paced and explosive production.
Ideally suited to Years 9, 10 and 11, this 90 minute abridged version of the play uses only Shakespeare’s language, combined with a contemporary setting. Clear storytelling makes it accessible for students at any stage of studying the text in class.
The production is available in two education packages:
7 FEB – 14 FEB 2020
Your group will be welcomed at the Orange Tree to experience this thrilling 90-minute production in our intimate theatre, where the audience surround the action.
Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri 10.30am & 2.00pm
Tickets £8. Teachers free.
26 FEBRUARY – 13 MARCH 2020
We bring the production to your school hall in a technically simplified touring version, for up to 120 students seated in the round.
The production is immediately followed by a 30minute workshop led by the actors which enables students to explore production ideas and re-direct key moments in the play to consider how the choices actors make affect the audience.
A two hour slot in the hall is required for the performance and workshop, plus approx.
1 hour to set up and 40 minutes to clear.
"The production was fantastic: vibrant, youthful and relevant. Even students who find Shakespeare difficult loved it"
