Take a fresh approach to studying Othello with this practical exploration of the play.

This in-depth session uses activities and games designed to draw out elements of the play’s language, characters and themes. The workshop is created for young people with an interest in Drama or English Literature and is an engaging way to enhance studies of Shakespeare or theatre. No previous experience is required, just a desire to jump in and enjoy exploring this famous tragedy.

Othello explores themes of love, power, revenge and race. Structured around Iago’s evil machinations, the play draws its audience into a deadly game of manipulation that explores how prejudice, power and control functions in society. The play also has rich language exploring relationships, love and the power of words.

Workshops will be led by one of the Globe’s highly experienced educational practitioners who include actors, teachers and directors. These extended workshops run over two hours, and offer an extensive opportunity for aspiring young actors and Shakespeare enthusiasts to explore text in depth and learn from the Globe team.

Please note that these workshops are designed for young adults aged 15+, but tickets must be purchased by someone 18+. It is a condition of sale that an adult must be available within the household for the full running time of the workshop. Price is per household so may include siblings aged 15+ in the same house.

Part of Telling Tales


A ticket covers one household joining via one device. These online events are designed for young people aged 15+ and will be attended by up to 15 households on the same video meeting. Please ensure you join the meeting five minutes in advance of the event start time.

A link with joining instructions will be emailed to you a day before the event. You will need access to a reliable internet connection and be able to join a Zoom meeting.

Participants are invited to tell us about any access requirements during the booking process; this will enable us to be aware of needs in order to make reasonable adjustments and/or adapt content where possible.

These online events are interactive and fun for all, which means that there are opportunities for the Globe practitioner and the participants to engage directly with each other live.

To make sure that everyone is also safe, young people generally choose to attend the online session alone or in sibling groups, but it is a requirement that an adult must be present and available in the household at all times. Please be aware that no recording or photography will be permitted.

Our staff retain the right to terminate any participant’s connection to the Zoom meeting if an adult is not present on screen or if our Ticketing terms and Community guidelines are not followed.


After the most challenging year in our charity’s history, we still need our supporters to help us recover.
