‘Nothing will come of nothing’

Workshop at the Royal Shakespeare Company


Y13 English students were delighted to take part in a bespoke literature workshop on King Lear last week. The day consisted of close focused analysis of the text and was led by a member of The RSC.  Comments from the students were whole-heartedly enthusiastic and appreciative:


“The focus was hugely useful for my interpretation”

“I learned that there is much ambiguity in the play; the exercise challenged our points of view and opened our eyes to different perspectives”

“The physicality of the workshop surprised me – and was great fun!”

“Viewing the play from a 21st century perspective really opened my eyes as to the vision of Shakespeare’s understanding of humanity”
