Hamlet by William Shakespeare( Visual )

35 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 28, the UK's eminent Royal Shakespeare Company brought Hamlet - Shakespeare's most famous and perhaps most influential play - back to the stage, spoken in verse but with contemporary dress and David Tennant in the eponymous role. Tennant's interpretation garnered critical approval and Patrick Stewart - playing Claudius - was praised for a performance of great depth and complexity. In this specially-shot screen version of the stage play (filmed on location rather than in the theatre), Tennant and Stewart reprise their roles
Playing Shakespeare by John Barton( Book )

2 editions published between 1984 and 2001 in English and held by 1,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Together with Royal Shakespeare Company actors including Patrick Stewart, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Ben Kingsley, and David Suchet, director John Barton demonstrates how to adapt Elizabethan theater for the modern stage. Barton begins by explicating Shakespeare's verse and prose, speeches and soliloquies, and naturalistic and heightened language to discover the essence of his characters. In the second section, Barton and the actors explore nuance in Shakespearean theater, from evoking irony and ambiguity and striking the delicate balance of passion and profound intellectual thought, to finding new approaches to playing Shakespeare's most controversial creation, Shylock, from The Merchant of Venice

Players of Shakespeare : essays in Shakespearean performance( Book )

7 editions published between 1985 and 1990 in English and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is believed to be the first book of its kind. Twelve distinguished actors were asked to write about the preparation and performance of a Shakespeare role they had played in a production with the Royal Shakespeare Company. The contributors are Patrick Stewart, Sinead Cusack, Donald Sinden, John Bowe, Geoffrey Hutchings, Brenda Bruce, Tony Church, Michael Pennington, Richard Pasco, Roger Rees, Gemma Jones and David Suchet. Each has concentrated on one character, sometimes played over a number of years in different productions, and each account is illustrated with photographs. In editing the essays Philip Brockbank has been concerned to preserve the actors' individual voices. -- From publisher's description
