GSC Workshops

“The active approach to Romeo and Juliet was fantastic - very relevant to current work.”

Karen Wheeler, Cowplain Community School, Hampshire

From Primary to A-level, we will create the workshop that will work best for you.

Our workshops are practical and explore the text as a script written for performance, and because we understand that all teachers’ needs are different, we tailor-make every workshop to your specific area of interest. Here's some examples of previous workshops:

Othello ~ Examining Iago's manipulation of Othello with the dialogue and other dramatic techniques

Romeo & Juliet ~ Investigating interpretations of Romeo and Mercutio using Act 2, Scene 4


Macbeth ~ Discovering how the relationship of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth evolves, and the Gothic

The Tempest ~ Exploring power and status, and how different groups on the island use it


Julius Caesar ~ Examining the theme of persuasion and the mind-set of key characters


Dream ~ An all day workshop on Lovers and Faeries, ending in a performance by pupils


King Lear ~ Unlocking Tragedy in Performance

Hamlet ~ How Shakespeare creates atmosphere on stage

Measure For Measure ~ Exploring the nature of comedy in the play
