THEATRE ROYAL PRODUCES LEAVING CERT SHAKESPEARE RESOURCE FOR CLASS OF 2021

The Story

We’re delighted to announce the release of our annual Shakespeare Review for Leaving Cert students, featuring King Lear, which this year is being delivered online to homes and schools across the region.

Directed by Liam Meagher, facilitated by former English teacher Edward Denniston and starring Jenny Fennessy, Andrew Holden, Anne O’Riordan, Joe Meagher and Simon O’Gorman in the title role, the King Lear Review provides a study of key scenes from this year’s Leaving Cert prescribed text, explored in detail by theatre facilitators. The digital stream, available to purchase for €5, was rehearsed and filmed live on stage at Theatre Royal Waterford in strict adherence to public health guidelines.

Upon purchase, the digital stream remains available to the student for multiple viewings until June, 2021. The resource pack also includes a book of essays from WIT English and Theatre Studies faculty staff, plus a Q&A recorded video session between Leaving Cert students from a number of schools across the region and the creative team.
