Our online education site for young people now also explores A Midsummer Night's Dream and Henry V.

Our in-depth online Shakespeare resource for school pupils has added two more plays to its site: A Midsummer Night's Dream and Henry V

The Shakespeare Learning Zone was launched last year to help students gain the skills and confidence to understand Shakespeare's language and plays. Photos and videos from our archives are combined with detailed analysis about characters, themes and staging to give young people a real insight into the texts they are studying, whatever level they're working at. 

There are also new interactive features on the site, including quizzes to test your character knowledge and a 'Sort the plot' game.
