Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank is Shakespeare’s Globe flagship project for secondary schools in London and Birmingham.
Year 6 – Year 13 students can get free or heavily discounted tickets to a production designed especially for young people and performed in the open air Globe Theatre. We also run training sessions with teachers and workshops for students to help them to develop practical ways to understand Shakespeare’s plays.
Announcing Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank 2022…
We’re delighted to announce that Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank will return in March 2022 with a brand new production of Macbeth, created especially for young people.
Applications for free tickets for non-selective state schools in London and Birmingham and discounted tickets for other schools are now open. We expect a high demand for tickets this year so recommend that you apply as soon as possible.
Each year the project gives free tickets to students – they come to the Globe Theatre to see a full-scale Shakespeare production, created specifically for young people. In 2019, our 13th Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank production played to over 27,000 schoolchildren, over 18,000 of whom came for free.
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.

There have been 15 Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank productions so far. Travel through time with the below gallery and take a look back at some of our previous play titles.
Over the past eleven 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.
