Exploring family and other relationships through Shakespeare’s work: Theatrical game as part of the National Theatre of Northern Greece’s Big Day tribute to William Shakespeare

Relationships – especially family relationships – are an important theme in many of Shakespeare’s plays. This workshop explores different kinds of relationships through the work of the great playwright and is designed to help children express themselves creatively and recognise the lasting value of relationships from Shakespeare's time until today.

The workshop will be led by Maria Nomikou, Partnerships and Programmes Manager at the British Council. It is aimed at children aged 9 to 11 and lasts 90 minutes. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

To register for the workshop, please call Mrs Konstantina Matziri on 2315 200 029 Tuesday to Friday (10.00–15.00).
