What Players-Shakespeare.com does

What we want to do: We think that Shakespeare’s plays are in a class of their own, and are worth exploring by anyone with an interest in human nature, English literature, or theatre. The best way of exploring them, in our view, is by experiencing them: by seeing them performed; by playing them yourselves; by play-reading them; and by exploring characters and situations in the plays. We help you set …Read More

Preparing Malvolio for performance with MFFEV5 Parts and Cues

To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare in 2016, we’re going to run a play-reading of Twelfth Night on January 17th (as close as we could get to Twelfth Night. We’re also going to run a play-reading on Saturday, April 23rd, but I’m not sure which play yet). We hope other groups might do something similar using our MFFEV5 Twelfth Night. We’ve been using MFFEV5 internally for our last three play-readings …Read More

MFFEV5 – An exciting new resource for Shakespeare lovers

 We’ve been rather quiet for the last two or three months, because we’d promised to launch MFFEV5 in 4Q15. Well, it’s still 4Q15, and we’re very pleased to announce that we’re launching MFFEV5 today. It’s been rather more work than we anticipated, so we’ve all been working quite hard. I would like to congratulate the whole team for the efforts everyone has put in. Comparisons are odious, but exceptions can sometimes …Read More
