Macbeth tour update - NEW SHOWS ADDED!

Thank you to everybody who has got in touch about our Macbeth tour. As of July 18 we have provisionally sold out all our in-school slots, although it is always worth being added to our waiting list as cancellations do occur, find our more here.

Due to the exceptional demand, we have added two new theatre shows in the Spring term: The Beacon in Wantage (near Oxford) on 27 Feb and Waterside Arts Centre in Sale (near Manchester) on 17 March.

Spring dates are listed below - please note that our shows at the Lowry on 17 Nov and RADA on 13 Dec are still going ahead, but both are now sold out.

If you're unable to make any of these dates, we can also provide workshops outside of the tour schedule, and this can be linked to Macbeth or one of the wide range of workshop areas we cover.

The production will be filmed for a DVD release in early 2017. Details will be posted here as soon as we have them.

Ticket prices: 12 (10 concs) Prices may vary where booking fees apply. Group rates are available, please contact theatres for details.

Study Splendid Productions with OCR

We were delighted to announce that we have been working with the excellent AS/A2 Drama & Theatre team at OCR to create a Topic Exploration Pack all about Splendid (our own self!).

It's an overview of the kind of theatre we aim to make, and includes some suggested workshop activities so you can try out a Splendid session of your own.

Teachers using the OCR syllabus can use us as an influential practitioner, but the Splendid Pack (and many other useful resources) are available to everyone, and can be downloaded here: http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/314576-practitioners-splendid-productions-topic-exploration-pack.pdf .

(If you're not with OCR but interested in teaching Splendid, check with your board - we offer lots of ways to support teachers directly.)

Odyssey DVD, script and education pack available to order now

We filmed a particularly uproarious show of our latest production at RADA Studios in December, and we have wrangled it into an entertaining, multi-camera record of live theatre at its most unpredictable. For a flavour, have a look at our YouTube trailer above.

Both the DVD and script are available to order NOW. Full details, prices and multi-pack offers can be found at our shop.

For more details, including prices, discounts and three ways to order, come with me to the shop...
