This pack supports the RSC’s 2011 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Nancy Meckler.

The activities provided are specifically designed to support KS3 students (but can be adapted for other ages) studying or seeing the play, offering a deeper insight into the choices that can be explored through staging. The pack is divided up into 5 distinct sections designed to help you to plan your lessons: Exploring Power Games; Investigating the characters; Exploring theatre choices; Understanding the play’s structure; Interview with Nancy Meckler (Director) and a Pippa Nixon Interview Transcript (Hippolyta/Titania). Activities follow the RSC's active approach to learning about Shakespeare and are driven and guided by our rehearsal room practice.
