About the Event

Why are we doing this workshop?

The workshop would dispel the myth that Shakespeare is ‘too hard’ to understand. Give the students confidence in verse speaking, help them to understand the nuts and bolts of the text, how to approach character both intellectually and physically. In other words with the full self. The techniques and skills learned can be transferred to any Shakespeare play, monologue, or scene.
