To mark the anniversary of Shakespeare's
birthday we are sharing an edited version of the performance online
together with a raft of online clips from a quiz to creative activities. Whether you're in a classroom or in your living room, let's join together and immerse ourselves in the brilliance of the Bard.
New Perspectives created the performative workshop Shhh...akespeare to help to break down the perceived barriers to reading, understanding and enjoying Shakespeare. Presented by one actor and one theatre practitioner as a live hour long performative workshop is designed to tour to school halls, 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.
