Every production of Shakespeare's plays is different—the director and designer must decide upon a theme. For his 2010 production, David Farr and his team decided to emphasize the conflicts that follow a regime change. The materials in a 13-page education pack, prompt young thespians to tackle the same theme as well as the challenges faced by the design team. Groups create the missing letters and their behind the scenes story. To deal plainly, this is a great resource.
