OT Community will refocus existing Shakespeare projects to strengthen links to the national curriculum and make the process more collaborative, giving students more ownership over the final production.
In January 2022, OT Community will launch a new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with in-school workshops which will introduce the play to students, discuss the social themes and give them a chance to discuss the issues in the play.
Between Key Stages 1-4, students will look at issues around healthy relationships within PSHE lessons. A Midsummer Night’s Dream provides examples of unhealthy relationships and issues around consent, which will be used as stimulus to discuss these issues with students within a workshop.
In March 2022 the OT will open with daytime performances for primary and secondary schools and public performances over the Easter holidays. Performance schedule to be confirmed.
