One Take Shakespeareat the Donmar Warehouse

Monday 17 November 2014


Are you female? Aged 13 – 18? The Donmar Warehouse have a challenge for you!

One Take Shakespeare is a new competition for young women aged between 13 and 18 run by the Donmar Warehouse, one of the UK’s leading producing theatres. Alongside our all-female production of Henry IV, we are challenging young women across the country to make Shakespeare their own by recording themselves performing a speech from one of his plays, written for a male character.

All entries will be judged by a panel from the Donmar Warehouse, and two winners will be given tickets to see our upcoming sold out production of City Of Angels, plus a night’s stay at a top London hotel.

Find out all the rules and watch some examples on our Tumblr page - and don’t forget to share your video using the hashtag #OneTakeShakespeare
