    Throughout September and October, RSC workshops were held in ten Black Country Primary and Secondary schools. Students and teachers actively explored Shakespeare's language and began to create their own plays in response.

    Shakespeare's language was used as an inspiration for the student's scripts.

    The scripts were then handed over to RSC directors. The directors worked with three Black Country colleges to rehearse the young people's plays.
