Meet Miss Portia.

A secondary school teacher who’s trying to get her Year 11 students to focus on their upcoming GCSEs but how can she when Hamlet’s grieving her father, Othello has been accused of something he hasn’t done and Isabel is forced to confront her own fate!

This is no ordinary class. The students are iconic characters from the plays of William Shakespeare and as tensions rise, can Miss Portia steer them away from rash decisions which could change their lives forever?

Celebrating 15 years of witty and original productions, Intermission Youth Theatre are proud to present EXCLUDED!, a powerful new play which will take you on a journey to re-imagine the world of Shakespeare whilst raising the current issues facing young people in Education.

“I love the work these young people perform. They are inquisitive, full of energetic, authentic talent and creativity. They give voice to important issues facing them today. ”Naomie Harris, Intermission Youth Patron

★★★★★ “Intermission Youth Theatre (IYT) has built an outstanding reputation for developing the acting talents and skills of young people traditionally excluded from or unacquainted with theatre. ”Plays to See (Juliet & Romeo,2021)

★★★★★ “Just imagine some of Shakespeare’s most famous characters but thrown together all in one play. It might seem a bit random but not in this powerful, innovative and moving production.”London Theatre Review (Excluded, 2019)

“A high-energy production, that is a joy to watch; full of wit, repartee and humour but not afraid to engage in more solemn moments and to drive home its message. ”Broadway Baby, (Midsummer Night’s Dream, 2022)
