Willis Prize for the Knowledge of Shakespeare

The Willis Memorial Shakespeare Prize 2016 will be held on Monday 18th April (the week of Shakespeare’s birthday and deathday) at 7.15pm to 8.45pm in Adare or 4 to 5.30pm in the Library

 (other times are possible if you find these difficult: see JMG).

All pupils in these forms have studied at least one play by Shakespeare, which you can use in the general question (60 minutes) about his plays.  Questions will be very open, allowing you to show your knowledge of and insights into the play(s) you choose.  

In addition, you can/should use knowledge of any other plays you have studied, read, or seen on stage / film.

The second question (30 minutes) will be an unseen poetry question on a sonnet by Shakespeare.
