Our flagship project for secondary and post-16 further education students

Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank is Shakespeare’s Globe flagship project for schools in London and Birmingham.

As part of the project, each year, 20,000 free tickets are given to students to see a full-scale Shakespeare production, created specifically for young people, here at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Over the past ten years, to work alongside these productions or on their own, we’ve created a wealth of teaching resource websites for individual Shakespeare plays. These include the key curriculum titles Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. You can find links to all of the individual websites below.

Romeo and Juliet YouTube Premiere

From 28 September 2020, you can watch our 2019 production of Romeo and Juliet filmed in the Globe Theatre. This will be available to watch until February half-term 2021.

Subscribe to our YouTube channel and set a reminder to receive a notification when the film is available.

To support this stream we are offering a series of CPDs for teachers and family workshops which you can find below.

Playing Shakespeare is supported by Deutsche Bank as part of Born to Be – a youth engagement programme which is committed to helping young people reach their full potential.
