Shakespeare on demand for schools, colleges and youth groups

Three spotlights focus on the woman playing Richard III, who is holding a crown up. Around her, people bow

As people around the world commemorate the anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth and death on 23rd April, GSA is making screenings of its recent productions of two Shakespeare plays available to schools, colleges and youth groups.

The contemporary setting of this abridged version of Hamlet, which nonetheless uses the original language, is ideal for secondary school audiences. With its focus on the core plot and younger characters, its sword fighting, high emotions and ghostly apparitions, it is a highly engaging introduction to what is arguably Shakespeare’s most significant play.

Richard III is also transposed to a modern setting with the action taking place at the turn of the 21st Century as the former Soviet Union crumbled and a new generation of oligarchs jockeyed for power. The play, always one that speaks to us of a world in crisis, tackles what happens when leaders lie, when countries believe those lies and when state sponsored assassinations become normal. Performed by Actor-Musicians, the use of specially-composed music, performed on stage, heightens the poignancy and builds engagement with audiences.

The shows were selected, rehearsed and produced with Covid-security at the forefront of planning. Clever blocking and choreography ensured performers remained socially distanced, offering drama teachers an interesting angle. Creative teams had to discover fresh new interpretations of the scripts to communicate concepts like love and torture, which are normally expressed using touch.
