Cyclone Rep, Ireland’s Leading Shakespeare Theatre-in-Education Company presents The Shakespeare Sessions. These are entertaining and engaging student-centred performances of Shakespeare texts. This year the company is presenting The King Lear Session, The Hamlet Session and The Romeo & Juliet at The Source.

Each performance includes an edited production of the play together with a scholarly review clarifying the main themes as well as discussions with the students and the opportunity to participate. The Shakespeare Sessions will guide Junior and Senior Cycle learners in their understanding of The Bard’s masterpieces. Actors engage directly with the student through: audience participation; discussion of main themes within the play, characters, plotline; and a Q&A section.
