    Shakespeare for Beginners with Anne Odeke

    July 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


    Thursday 20 July
    7pm – 10pm
    £20 + booking fee

    Scared of Shakespeare?
    Hated it at school?
    Or perhaps you like Shakespeare but want to learn to love it?

    Good news!

    Coming to Metal on Thursday 20 July is a one off, 3 hour Shakespearean workshop with Southend based, professional actor and playwright, Anne Odeke.  Anne is currently performing at The Globe in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.

    Having been at The Globe 5 times and worked for The RSC, Anne knows a thing or two about how best to approach Shakespearean text in a way that is fun and accessible for all.

    In this workshop we’ll be looking at language, characters, performance and we’ll learn a bit about the main man himself.

    They’ll be an invitation to perform at the end of the session – but know, there is absolutely no pressure to do so. This is about inspiring people to see and read more Shakespeare.  The bar will be open too – so let’s have a coffee or a glass of something stronger and find out together why so many folks go bonkers for the Bard.

    With only 20 tickets available, grab them whilst you can.
