Crime Scene Investigation - Murder Mystery
Workshop Focus: Romeo and Juliet / Communication / Teamwork
50 mins or 60 mins via Zoom
Looking for an exciting way to introduce your class to Shakespeare? Look no further!
There's been a murder in Verona, Italy. The victim has not been identified and the murderer is nowhere to be seen. All that's been found is a suitcase. Can your students work as a team to crack codes and solve puzzles against the clock? Only one way to find out...
In this online workshop, your students will work live with a British facilitator in character as a detective, to identify the murderer, their motive, the murder weapon and the victim before the end of the lesson. Students will be provided with case files packed with information to help them solve the crime.
Students are encouraged to speak in English, as this is the only way they will be able to communicate with the detective. The main aim of the workshop is to give students an insight into Romeo and Juliet with the opportunity to practise their English in a creative way.
This workshop has been designed for students who have had at least one year of English classes. It is a perfect introduction to some of the characters and key plot points of Romeo and Juliet. It has been developed by head facilitator Abbie working alongside a professional escape room designer. Abbie has worked as a freelance facilitator and workshop designer for the world's largest youth theatre festival, the Shakespeare School's Festival since 2015 and has been a guest speaker at Shakespearia, and international student theatre festival in Voronezh, Russia.
Secondary schools anywhere in the world. The workshop is online and completely live.
