The RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) has created this excellent Learning Zone with everything you could possibly want to know about the bard and his works. Click on the link to find key facts, key scenes, pictures from past productions, and videos of actors and directors working on and performing the plays. You can also find out more about your favourite characters and how they relate to each other.
The Globe is streaming 6 performances of Shakespeare's plays, one at a time, on rotation every two weeks, as part of their 'YouTube Premiers'. Watch Hamlet, originally performed from 2018, available until 19th April, followed by Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Two Nobel Kinsmen, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and The Winters Tale. Hamlet starts at 7 but you can rewind to the beginning.
