In March 2015, in a unique collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and the Shakespeare Institute, we will be running a free online course.

The MOOC is ideal for 16 to 19 year olds in full time education. This innovative four week course will explore how the play would have been staged in Shakespeare’s time, how it has been interpreted throughout the 20thand 21st centuries and how the 2014 RSC production of Much Ado About Nothing (Love’s Labour’s Won) brings the play to life for a modern audience.   

The MOOC will feature an exclusive range of video and audio content and is perfect for studying in the classroom, at home or as part of a group. It is an excellent complement to watching the production in live performance, at a cinema or in a UK school as part of the RSC’S Schools’ Broadcast series. You can also register for the broadcast of Much Ado About Nothing (Love’s Labour’s Won) from Friday 21 November.
