Writer : William Shakespeare (Creatives: Jayne Williams, Neale Birch and Gary Lagden)
Director : Jayne Williams
Designer : Clare Taylor

Igniting intrigued minds and inspiring an excitement for Britain's most famous playwright.
Shhh...akespeare is an exploratory explosion of words that break down the perceived barriers to reading, understanding and enjoying Shakespeare. Children will participate in a celebration of the richness of Shakespearean language from many of his plays and sonnets, with phrases to take away and an overview of one whole play - Macbeth.

Presented by one actor and one theatre practitioner this hour long performative workshop accessible for all ages 9yrs + whether Year 5/6 Primary as a first dip of the toe into Shakespeare or in Year 7 Secondary already immersed in Macbeth. Shhh...akespeare.
