Donmar Warehouse

A key part of the Donmar Warehouse's Shakespeare Trilogy is the commitment to young people, and to give away 25% of all tickets to young people for free. This is accompanied by an extensive programme of workshops and events for young people and schools, and lots of online content.

The Donmar Warehouse believes that too many young people don't believe that Shakespeare is for them. We want to change that.  25% of the tickets for the Shakespeare Trilogy are being given away for free to young people as part of our Young+Free ticket scheme - find out more about the scheme.

A key part of the Young+Free programme is the commitment to work with schools, with opportunities for young people to take part in workshops, learn more about the world of the plays, and create their own performances.

A young man in a workshop on HENRY IV demonstrates what he thinks Prince Hal looks like at the beginning of the play.

In 2014, HENRY IV played at Mulberry School for Girls in East London for 7 performances, giving the local community, many of whom had never seen a play, the opportunity to experience the production.

To help promote our Young+Free programme to young people, the Donmar created #charadespeare - Shakespeare charades. We asked some of our friends to create their own #charadespeare - see how many you can guess.

First up was Donmar Artistic Director Josie Rourke.

One Take Shakespeare
We're also challenging young people to create a One Take Shakespeare - A 90 second video of any Shakespeare speech, written for a character of the opposite gender. Here are some of the company of the Shakespeare Trilogy showing how it's done.
