Reprint. Originally published: 2003.

The best-selling guide to acting Shakespeare in a new smaller and lighter handbook size. Shakespeare tells the actor when to go fast and when to go slow; when to pause, when to come in on cue and when to accent a word.

His text is full of such clues. He tells the actor when but never tells him why or how.

That is up to the actor. Much like bringing a musical score to life, Peter Hall guides us to 'speak the speech'. An essential text for classical training at drama school and an invaluable reference book for actors and directors working on Shakespeare productions.

Peter Hall makes watching or reading Shakespeare a richer experience, for audiences as well as actors.
