With New Zealand celebrating its 125th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage Movement achieving the vote, it seems appropriate for the students at Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand National Shakespeare Schools Production (SGCNZ NSSP) 2018 to be focusing on three of his plays containing very strong females.

Scenes from Love’s Labour’s Lost, The Taming of the Shrew and Antony & Cleopatra will be directed by Jonathon Hendry, Kim Morgan and Colin Spicer respectively at the University of Otago's College of Education on the 5 October at 6.30pm and the 6 October at 7.30pm. 

46 students, chosen from the 24 Regional and National SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals (UOSWSFs), will spend a week doing workshops with high calibre tutors and rehearsing their plays – starting from being cast on their first day, to performing 40 minutes from each play for the public just 5 days later!
