10:30am to 3pm, 15 March, in-venue at BFI Southbank

This event is an ideal way to develop students’ understanding of Shakespeare introducing them to his world, his plays and how they have been adapted for the screen. We will explore Shakespeare’s life, the role of the Globe Theatre, plus in-depth analysis of extracts from some of his famous plays, from tragedies such as Hamlet and Macbeth to the romance and inevitable despair of Romeo and Juliet.

The day will include drama activities around soliloquies and famous scenes, in-depth character analysis and compare different traditional and modern adaptations of Shakespeare’s work, including animations, silent film and musicals.
