NEN National Theatre resources from Peter Halls’ production of Twelfth Night

Above: 12thNight

The resource offers exclusive performance extracts from the National Theatre’s production of Twelfth Night, directed by Sir Peter Hall.

The National Theatre's Twelfth Night teaching resource has been constructed to offer a platform for discussion and language analysis for teachers and students exploring the recent South Bank production theme of ‘love’ in the play.

This resource is designed to support A-Level English classes approaching the AQA A2 exam.

Specifically focusing on the AQA Unit 3 ‘Love through the Ages’; all discussion questions primarily focus on this area as well as examining the wider themes of the play as a whole. Questions relate to having an informed response to the text, understanding how form, structure and language shape meaning and understanding the significance of contexts.

LGfL Content Manager Bob Usher said ‘We are delighted to be able to offer this unique resource in partnership with the National Theatre. This resource follows on from the January 2011 launch of the National Theatre Hamlet resource – which has seen consistent growing use across London schools in the lead up to the examination season. The simple format, presenting relevant resources with outstanding video excerpts is a winning combination and we look forward to working with the National Theatre to develop further resources for LGfL NEN connected schools.’
