This book from the series of new editions for 11-16 year olds from Shakespeare's Globe Education tackles Romeo and Juliet. The book is packed with high-quality colour photographs of productions at the Globe alongside engaging interviews with actors, practical exercises and considerable background information. These run alongside the full text of the play with a glossary placed handily on every page.
The photographs, director's notes, rehearsal exercises and actors' views are taken from three productions of Romeo and Juliet (Tim Carroll 2004, Bill Buckhurst 2009 and Dominic Dromgoole 2009). There are thorough Examiner's Notes interspersed throughout, offering well-thought-out questions and comments. The book is supported by an online Dynamic Learning resource providing access to video clips from Globe productions and other resources. An inspiring resource which will provide a host of ideas and approaches to help teachers engage the teenagers it is aimed at.
