RUFF STUFF

Shakespeare VS Sport

RUFF STUFF

Let the games begin. High school has its challenges, and not just for students. RUFF STUFF examines the relevance of Shakespeare for modern audiences through the eyes of two opposing teachers – this is Physical Education VS Drama in a dramatic showdown that sees each teacher arguing their point through demonstration. The language remains intact as scenes from some of the Bard’s most-iconic plays are put through their paces. But there can only be one winner so who decides? That’s where Karen from Admin comes into play. 

Expect blood, sweat and… meticulously filled out paperwork.
