There is a wide range of activities for each play providing abundant opportunities for activities which allow students to work towards a thorough understanding of the plays as theatre and literature, towards a range of interpretations of the plays and to explore ways in which a script can be transformed into a stage play.

Most plays include activities dealing with

  • language
  • staging and performance
  • character
  • plot
  • dramatic structure

In addition to the activities for each of the plays there is  a separate section on staging Shakespeare's plays.

The plays selected in Tragedies are more suited to senior secondary students, but can be used with middle secondary.

All activities are photocopiable.
