Suiting the Action to the Word

Schools Only

Please note - this workshop is for Schools Only (ages 16-18)

Cracking open Shakespeare’s canon and smashing through some of the myths connected to his study, this practical workshop allows students of Shakespeare the space to fall in love with him as a story teller/craftsman and human psychologist. A workshop about Shakespearean action, we focus on communication/the world of the play and a new way to approach the text as a director and actor. 


Alexandra Spencer-Jones is Artistic Director of Action To The Word Theatre Company, Professor of Shakespeare and educational practitioner.
