We would LOVE to welcome new as well as returning faces for this profit-share production, and we've always loved to see applications from underrepresented groups in theatre. Please share this link far and wide with your acting friends.

A great delight to take a little couch time with @DT_Plus, looking at #Macbeth productions from @LivEveryPlay @Tara_Arts & @TheRSC #AtHomeWithShakespeare #TeachingResources
The final episode of #AtHomeWithShakespeare with @BenCrystal supports your students to analyse #Macbeth Act 2 Scene 2. Compare how meaning is conveyed in three contrasting productions from @LivEveryPlay, @Tara_Arts and @theRSC ๐Ÿ‘‰ bit.ly/36BC2Vf #TeachingResources

The worst thing is reading Shakespeare out loud in class. Half the kids struggle, none of them hit their marks or rhythm. Half the rhymes don't work in a modern accent, it's THE WORST way to experience it! Then you hear @bencrystal speak Shakespeare in OP and it's amazing!!!

What a beautiful & brilliant idea #Shakespeare #accessibility
I'm thinking of starting a virtual Shakespeare discussion group for the blind/visually impaired. Any suggestions for accessible and free full-cast recordings? #Shakespeare #Accessibility
