No “great stage of fools” at Royal Shakespeare Company workshop

Year 13 English students were treated to an exclusive King Lear workshop, based in the Clore Learning Centre this week. Run by associates of the RSC, pupils explored key scenes within the play, bringing them to life to cement their understanding of the text. They were able to unlock the language, characters, themes and key moments from the play and were enthusiastic about the whole experience which for some of them was very much out of their comfort zone.

Writing about the trip Head of English, Harriet Perrett, said, “We were so lucky to be surrounded by all this experience and they really made the students question different interpretations of the play.” The group will consolidate their trip to Stratford by watching the RSC Live Stream later in the week.
