A colourful illustration; Shakespeare walking through London towards a theatre. To his right, a man on a horse, a disabled man asking for money, and a cat leaping from a window with a fish. To his left, two men fight on the street, a dung-cart wheels over the crossroads, and a woman throws rubbish from her window.

A Day Out at Shakespeare’s Theatre – interactive online experience

Theatre lovers and history buffs everywhere are invited to join us for A Day Out at Shakespeare’s Theatre, a new interactive online experience from digital learning platform A Bit Lit.

There’s nothing dry and dusty about this history lesson, which gives participants the opportunity to imagine themselves as a theatre producer in the 1600s, diving into the decisions and dilemmas you might have faced while taking in the sights, sounds and even smells of the day. What’s more, it’s all drawn from the latest academic research, creating a two-hour experience that is informative and as authentic as it’s possible to be over Zoom. There may even be bears…

 

It draws together talents from the worlds of theatre and academia including Simon Russell Beale, Emma Smith and an improv troupe who’ll perform the play you produce, to take learning about Shakespeare’s theatre to a new, more immersive level.

Access for all is built into the platform and the cast includes actors using sign language for D/deaf participants as well as audio description to ensure inclusivity. It’s an experience you can enjoy alone or with friends.

Book your tickets on Eventbrite.
