This is a very exciting week for Digital Theatre Plus as we proudly announce our founding member partnership with Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

With the birthday of the nation's playwright just around the corner, we’re thrilled to be able to play our part in the continuation of his legacy as one of the founding partners of Shakespeare Week. This deepens our association with the world-renowned Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and we look forward to bringing Shakespeare into the lives of young students all over the country.

The project was launched with an event at the House of Commons last night and will be held from 17 to 23 March 2014 and is already amassing a follwing with Dame Judi Dench as one of it's backers

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and Digital Theatre Plus share a passion and purpose in their commitment to providing young people with a rich and rewarding experience of theatre and the creative arts, regardless of financial, geographical or social constraint.

Both organisations believe access to quality creative and cultural experiences enhance learning and deepen understanding. By working together on Shakespeare Week, the ambition is to provide a nationwide opportunity for young people to have access to great theatre and the people that make it.
