We're always looking for new ways that you and your students can explore Shakespeare's plays and their protagonists. So we are excited to annonunce our new CPD workshop, Shakespeare and Women launching on 1 May.

Designed to help facilitate conversations with your classes about sexism, misogyny and depictions of women in Shakespeare it will focus on four women in the plays – Juliet, Lady Macbeth, Beatrice and Hero. We'll explore how practice direct from the our rehearsal rooms can be adapted for the classroom.
