Something Wicked This Way Comes

Calling all young people 8-25!

2023 marks 400 years since the publication of Shakespeare’s First Folio, the first time many of his plays appeared in print. Without it, we wouldn’t have As You Like It or Antony and Cleopatra, Malvolio or Macbeth, the Ides of March or the Isle full of noises. .

At Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation, we are using this anniversary to engage young people with Shakespeare’s plays in a new way. We want young people to celebrate and challenge his stories and characters, see them afresh, and make them their own.

Sharpen your pencils, tune your instruments, and prepare your brushes – something wicked this way comes, and you'll want to be ready when it does.

Join our mailing list and be the first to hear about our What You Will competition, launching 20 April 2023...
