Shakespeare’s Words: The Rules of Verse Speaking – and how Shakespeare Breaks Them!


Platform: Live Online Workshop  |  Tutor: Sarah Hannah  |  Time (UK): 6.00pm – 9.00pm 

With the recent resurgence of period dramas both on stage and especially on the screen, the demand for ‘Classically Trained’ actors has never been greater. Changes in the way we audition has also seen an increase in actors being called upon to audition and self-tape with Shakespearean monologues leaving many actors intimidated and uncertain about how to best prepare.

Ideal for actors of all ability, this online workshop will teach you all of the basic rules for acting in verse, perfect for any period drama work on screen… and then learn how Shakespeare and others break the rules! What these ‘rule breaks’ are for and the amazing help that this gives you when speaking these lines and bringing your character to life.

This course can be complimented by our Secrets of Acting Shakespeare: First Folio Technique course.
