Join us in Stratford-upon-Avon this summer and explore our productions of All's Well That Ends Well and Richard III with talks from leading academics, sessions with actors and directors and insights into the theatre-making process. Some sessions will also be streamed live, allowing you to join us wherever you are in the world. 

Whether you're a primary or secondary teacher, student, or just a person who loves theatre, this course provides the perfect opportunity for you to immerse yourself in theatre and develop your knowledge and understanding of Shakespeare's plays. At the same time, you will gain insights into the creative processes that underpin our productions, as well as into the RSC as a company.

The RSC Summer School is delivered in collaboration with the Shakespeare Institute.
