Shakespeare Monologue Competition

Shakespeare’s plays are full of spine-tingling moments when characters speak directly to the audience and tell them their inner feelings and desires. Choose a monologue and learn it off by heart or produce an original monologue based on a Shakespeare character. Simply film your performance and send it to us! Open to key stages 2-5.
