Students Learn Shakespeare for RSC Week 2018

Royal Shakespeare Company at Dulwich College Seoul 2018

The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) was in school for all of last week helping to develop our students' understanding of Shakespeare's famous literature alongside their ability to perform his remarkable stories.

Should young people read and perform old English from the time of Shakespeare when they are still getting to grips with modern English? It is a valid question but one for limited debate at Dulwich, where it is a must. Dulwich College’s Founder, Edward Alleyn, worked with Shakespeare himself in the early 17th century and so Shakespeare’s works have been enjoyed and studied closely by Dulwich students for close on 400 years.

Dulwich College International has an exclusive relationship with the Royal Shakespeare Company in England to ensure actors and drama teachers from England visit each Dulwich school overseas every year.
