Globe Theatre Trip
Shakespeare’s Globe – Sixth Form Education Workshops on 28th November 2019
On 28 November 2019 thirty A level English and Drama students attended a day of A Level workshops at Shakespeare’s Globe in London’s Bankside. Mr O’Shea and Mrs Beattie of the A Level English Department accompanied the students on a tour of Shakespeare’s theatrical space and even had the honoured privilege of getting on stage and performing some verse! They also got to go backstage and were instructed on staging and acting practices.
This was followed up by a number of workshops on Othello (our chosen Shakespearean text at A Level) focussing on context, language and analysis.
The day will prove invaluable for a deeper insight into Shakespeare as a working dramatist and in understanding how to achieve more advanced responses in A Level exams and coursework submissions.
