Here you can access and download our new Activity Toolkits, designed to support students, families and teachers in learning about Shakespeare from home.

Keep Your RSC educating

The RSC is a charity and our mission is to transform lives through amazing experiences of Shakespeare and great theatre. If you can, please consider supporting us by making a donation and Keep Your RSC.



The Activity Toolkits each contain a number of short 15 minute activities on each play. You can choose whether you want to work through them all and teach yourself a completely new play, or just pick the exercises that might help you revise or refresh your knowledge. 

Each activity also contains some extension suggestions that will take longer than 15 minutes but provide lots of different ideas for exploring the texts creatively at home. You can even share the things you create with the RSC using #ShareyourShakespeare
