Shakespeare Plays

Splats Shakespeare Days are a perfect way to inspire confidence, creativity and teamwork whilst improving speaking and listening skills and the joy of drama, literature and performance.

A series of workshop exploring wellbeing using physical theatre, circus skills, dance, music, magic, mime, puppetry and mask.

  • A Midsummer Night’s Dream – “A great introduction to the inventiveness of Shakespeare. Watch your pupils create the Midsummer Night’s madness of Oberon, Titania, Puck and the fairies causing chaos with their magical mischief on the humans. What fools these mortals be.”
  • Macbeth – “One of the great terrifying morality, mystery plays with its witches, warriors and ghosts. Follow the tragic fall of the Macbeths, who could defeat anything but their own gullible greed. Are dark forces in play or did they fool themselves? all hail Macbeth and find out with us.”
  • Romeo and Juliet – “In Splats Romeo and Juliet we explore the text in a different way, through stage fight to bring the immediate visceral energy of watching the play to life. We will create the fight scenes with your pupils and explore the action and romance of this most pulsating of plays.”
  • The Tempest – “Join Prospero as the storm created by his sprites brings his usurper brother and cronies to this mystical island. Watch as Prospero magically twist and turns all the characters dream like to bring them safely to a happy brave new world.”
  • Hamlet – “Hamlet is the most famous theatre character in the western world for simply being the best drawn reflection of human indecision. Follow Hamlet as he tries to find out who killed his father and what should he do. A true who dunnit with only a ghost as a witness.”​

Shakespeare Double Bill

Suitable for ALL students and a refreshing perspective for lovers of the play.
Mixing modern language and original text it makes the story fun and crystal clear. The best way to experience the Bard which, lets face it, he designed to be enjoyed as a live show.

How the Double Bill works

One hour long shows with a cast of three (needs to be seen to be believed) followed by Q & A or workshops in a half day visit.
For full day after the show your students can create their own version with our company or visiting director to perform at the end of the day to family and friends.
