Ed Vaizey to watch RSC webcast from London classroom
Culture secretary Ed Vaizey will watch the webcast of Tim Crouch's I, Cinna (The Poet), broadcast by the Royal Shakespeare Company, with year 7 and 8 pupils at Phoenix School, Shepherd's Bush, London.
Written for young people as the story of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar told from the point of view of the poet Cinna, a minor character in the original play, the live webcast will ask students to write their own pieces as they watch and submit them to the RSC online.
The performance on 2 July will be followed by a post-show Q and A session hosted by Konnie Huq with author Tim Crouch, performer Jude Owusu and children's author Malorie Blackman.
