We are delighted to welcome back Associate Director of The National Theatre and Artistic Director of The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington Simon Godwin!!

This course is designed to build confidence and enjoyment of Shakespeare. Too often we are intimidated by his language. These sessions will cover the foundations of Shakespearean acting, including embracing the energy of the verse, navigating how Shakespeare structures argument, and unlocking the magnitude of his finest characters. As well as delighting in the passion of his craft, your skills will soar by performing classical scenes and speeches in a nurturing and playful environment. You'll end the week with a newfound belief that Shakespeare writes for us all.
