Major education project created for Donmar’s Henry IV

Date Posted: 20/08/2014

Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female production of Shakespeare’s Henry IV has had an extensive education programme created to go alongside the show.

Running from 3rd October to the 29th November at the Donmar Warehouse, and with a one week residency at Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets, pupils will be able to see Henry IV for £5 per ticket, and take part in a series of creative workshops.

In addition, an online ‘Behind the Scenes’ educational resource guide will be made available to download, specifically aimed at those tackling Shakespeare for the first time.

A competition has also been created, ‘One Take Shakespeare’, which encourages girls around the country to make Shakespeare their own by recording and uploading a film of themselves performing a speech originally written for a male voice.

Phyllida Lloyd is well-known for her all-female production of Julius Caesar at the Donmar Warehouse which placed the play in a women’s prison.

Henry IV is the second instalment in what will be a trilogy of works at the Donmar.
