Past Production Teacher Packs

"The education pack is FANTASTIC! Id even go so far as to say Gold dust!
Clare Norton, Colstons Girls School, Bristol

All our productions come with a teacher pack crammed with so much useful information, they are an excellent teaching resource all on their own. Not only do they give an insight into each production, they also deal in detail with the history and practitioner theory surrounding the piece, the playwright and Splendids adaptation, with numerous specific examples of theory at work in each play. We couldn't help noticing that the level of detail has increased over the years, so we have reduced the price of our earlier, thinner Teacher Packs - they're still very useful though!

"The teacher pack was superb for helping students in their written responses for the new GCSE exam"
Sandra Craggs, Notting Hill and Ealing High School
