Directed by Geoff O’Keeffe for MILL PRODUCTIONS, this abridged version of Romeo and Juliet is an ideal opportunity to expose Junior Cycle students to their first live Shakespeare experience.
Throughout the year the venue also offers you and your pupils (at all levels) the opportunity to really engage with your chosen text by offering Drama Workshops to bring these texts to life. Workshops are led by experienced facilitators and designed to engage the student creatively by exploring characters, themes and language of your chosen text. Mill Productions has produced 2 Shakespeare plays every year for many years – including Macbeth in 2018, King Lear 2017 and Hamlet 2016.
