Encouraging academic achievement

Shakespeare can be a daunting challenge for audiences of any age.

Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank offers students a new way to learn about Shakespeare – through a fast-paced contemporary production. It aims to inspire greater academic achievement in the classroom.

How it works

It’s crucial for teenagers to understand Shakespeare’s themes and language as they have GCSEs to pass, and the results will affect their next steps in life.
 
Through live performances, educational workshops and online learning resources, Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank helps London state school students and their teachers meet national curriculum requirements.
 
More broadly, the project seeks to encourage a greater understanding of the role of drama, character and language in life.
 
London-based state schools receive free tickets to performances. For many, this first experience of live theatre proves life-changing.
