All’s Well That Ends Well

Shakespeare Folios

Shakespeare (Edited by Nick de Somogyi)
 

Another title in the pioneering Shakespeare Folios series—offering the absolute authenticity of the First Folio in a totally accessible form.

This brand new edition accurately reproduces the First Folio of the plays of William Shakespeare (1623), but does so in modern type. At a stroke, the dust of ages is blown away and what Shakespeare actually intended is revealed to modern readers. Now Shakespeareans everywhere — students, actors, directors — can see for themselves what the Folio really says.

As a further aid to understanding, on each opposite page, the same text appears but this time in a fully modernised version. This modern edition offers a useful safety net whenever the Folio becomes problematic.

Each volume also contains two introductions — one to the series, one to the particular play — textual notes, an appendix giving variant versions from the Quarto where appropriate, and a facsimile page from the First Folio.

Cardenio

William Shakespeare (edited by Greg Doran)
 
Based on an episode in Don Quixote, the play known as Cardenio by Shakespeare and Fletcher has disappeared but it forms the basis of an 18th-century piece, The Double Falsehood, by Lewis Theobald. By excising Theobald’s additions and inserting passages from contemporary Spanish plays on the same theme,  Associate Director Greg Doran has come up with a brilliant new text which is the nearest we are likely to come to the play that Shakespeare and Fletcher originally wrote.

It tells the story of a girl who dresses as a shepherd boy to follow her love into the mountains. It will be recognised as a major act of theatrical archaeology – the equivalent of ‘restoring’ a painting by a master which has been damaged and overpainted by others.

Freeing Shakespeare's Voice

The actor's guide to talking the text (new edition)

Kristin Linklater
 

A practical approach to breaking through the barriers of restraint and incomprehension when faced with Shakespeare.

Taking many of the techniques explored in her international bestseller Freeing The Natural Voice, in this companion volume Kristin Linklater shows how to apply them to the exploration and speaking of Shakespeare’s language.

Beginning with exercises designed to break long-held habits and allow an emotional rather than intellectual relationship to Elizabethan language, she analyses Shakespeare's strategies for creating character, story and meaning through figures of speech, iambic pentameter, rhyme and the alternation of verse and prose. Using copious examples from the plays, Linklater offers her readers the tools to increase understanding and make Shakespeare's words their own.
