We are taking the Shakespeare Trilogy on the road.
Our ground-breaking, all-female Shakespeare Trilogy is now available to watch for free in schools via the National Theatre’s on demand in schools service, with over 200 digital resources available on the Shakespeare Trilogy on Screen website.
The Shakespeare Trilogy was described by the Observer as ‘One of the most important theatrical events of the past 20 years.’ With a diverse, all-female cast and set in a women’s prison, the productions ask: Who owns Shakespeare?
The films are accompanied by the Shakespeare Trilogy on Screen website which features over 200 resources that have been developed in partnership with the Trilogy company, teachers and young people. These resources have been designed to support the teaching of Drama, English and PSHE, drawing out the productions’ contemporary relevance to young people and the world around them, and helping teachers find accessible ways to explore the films with their students. To further support the launch of the films we are embarking on a tour of six areas across the UK to deliver workshops for teachers and students with members of the Shakespeare Trilogy company.
