Play In A Day

Shakespeare's tale of dreams on a Midsummer night depicts the adventures of four young lovers, a group of amateur actors in a moonlit forest and their interactions with the fairies who inhabit it. The play is considered to be a journey into fantasy and the surreal world.

A fantastic accompaniment to the study of this classic in the classroom. 

Working together as actors to create a fun, action-packed 15- 20 minute performance, informing as much as it entertains, students will delight in this accessible reworking of the Shakespeare classic.

Key themes:

-          the value of teamwork

-         self-expression

-         public speaking

-         confidence building

-         increased subject knowledge

We recommend some prior knowledge or introduction to Shakespeare or the chosen title for any class undertaking a Shakespeare Play in a Day.
