About this item

Six episodes combine history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis and the personal passion of its celebrated hosts - Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Irons, Derek Jacobi, Trevor Nunn, Joely Richardson and David Tennant - to tell the story behind the stories of Shakespeare's greatest plays. Each episode combines interviews with actors, directors and scholars, along with visits to key locations, clips from some of the most celebrated film and television adaptations, and illustrative excerpts from the plays specially staged for the series at Shakespeare's Globe in London. Includes: "Hamlet" - An acclaimed Hamlet himself in the RSC's recent hit production, David Tennant meets with fellow Hamlets, including superstar Jude Law, comparing notes on the titanic challenge of playing the most iconic of all roles. "Macbeth" - Ethan Hawke invites viewers to join him in his quest to play Shakespeare's murderous Thane of Cawdor by uncovering the true story that served as inspiration, immersing himself in some of the most memorable and innovative productions and discovering Shakespeare's extraordinary insights into the criminal mind. "Richard II" - Derek Jacobi returns to a role he played 30 years ago, coaches actors at the Globe in aspects of the play, reveals why it could have cost Shakespeare his life - and shares some of the extraordinary modern political parallels within the play that still resonate as dictators are deposed. "The Comedies: 'Twelfth Night' and 'As You Like It'" - Joely Richardson investigates (with her mother Vanessa Redgrave) the legacy of these two brilliant cross-dressing comedies and the great comic and romantic heroines created by Shakespeare in two perennially popular plays. "The Histories: 'Henry IV' and 'Henry V'" - Jeremy Irons uncovers the enduring appeal of Shakespeare's "history plays," from the facts of English history to the father-son drama that Shakespeare created. "The Tempest" - Trevor Nunn, the legendary director who has directed 30 of Shakespeare's 37 plays and is determined to complete them all before he retires, takes viewers through the magical and mysterious world created in Shakespeare's last complete play.
