TIMSON, D.: Stories from Shakespeare, Vol. 3 (Unabridged)

Two leading English classical actors, Juliet Stevenson and Simon Russell Beale open the doors to eight important plays, including Much Ado About Nothing, Antony and Cleopatra, The Winter’s Tale, Measure for Measure and All’s Well That Ends Well. These newly written introductions by David Timson have proved eminently useful for young audiences coming to Shakespeare for the first time. Explained clearly, the introductions also feature numerous excerpts from the plays themselves.
