Shakespeare Nation

Shakespeare Nation is a collaboration between The Marlowe and the Royal Shakespeare Company to celebrate the works of Shakespeare and explore their relevance to modern-day Kent.


Community workshop

The Royal Shakespeare Company is currently running the 37 Plays project, a national playwriting scheme looking to find and produce readings of new plays across the country which tell ‘the stories of our nation’. This is to coincide with the 400th anniversary in 2023 of the publication of the First Folio of Shakespeare’s 37 Plays.

The project is inviting anyone in the UK to tell their story and will select 37 plays, of any form, to be performed script-in-hand in 2023. Visit this website for more information.

The Marlowe is hosting two introduction-to-writing workshops in collaboration with The RSC. The first workshop will be an introduction for anyone who is new to writing and the second will be with a professional writer exploring how to take your ideas to the next stage.

The first session is due to take place on Wednesday 28 September at The Marlowe Kit at 6pm-8pm.

If you are interested, please get in touch by email with your name. Spaces are limited so get in touch as soon as possible.
