Our flagship Shakespeare programme created with Contender Charlie provides an action-packed introduction to Shakespeare for KS3 audiences. These thrilling theatrical experiences aim to help young people better understand themselves, society and the world around us through additional activities in the theatre and classroom.

All our other productions are suitable for 14+ and delve into social and/or political themes that may ignite discussion and debate in your KS4 & KS5 students.

Alongside productions, we also offer workshops and online resources to help support students to deepen their understanding of the professional theatre industry – opening up the theatre processes of performers, directors, writers, designers and producers.
