From 11am-12pm on 2 April schools across the UK will be able to go behind the scenes and see how RSC actors approach the text of Romeo and Juliet with our free, online Live Lesson.

This 1 hour live lesson aims to help students with their GCSE work on Romeo and Juliet. Featuring RSC deputy artistic director Erica Whyman and actors from the current Romeo and Juliet company, students will see the actors and Erica work on language, looking at form and structure and interpretive choices. They will explore what these choices reveal about character and character relationships, and consider the dominant themes in the play.

The actors and director will work on key scenes from across the play and all of the work will support students in their critical reading. The lesson will be focused towards Key Stage 4 students but will be suitable for all young people from Key Stages 2-5.

There will also be a live Q&A where students can put their own questions to the actors and director.
