Countdown to Playreading…. T – 3: Read our play-reading reports

You are getting close to play-reading your first play. Before you do that, it might be an idea to read any play-reading reports of that play that we have published. It could give you some ideas to help with the play-reading.

.

It seems that most of you are likely to be play-reading Macbeth or Romeo and Juliet.

.

The easiest way to find our play-reading reports for those plays, follow the following instructions:

.

Macbeth:

If you’re using a laptop (or tablet in landscape mode) find the ‘Search Players-Shakespeare.com’ box at the right-hand-side of the page, beneath the menu. If you’;re using a smartphone you’ll find the search box after the text of this post.

.

In the search box below the ‘Search Players-Shakespeare.com’ title (and usually filled with ‘Google Custom Search’), type: Playreading Report Macbeth and then click on the search button to the right.

.

Ignore the first 4 or 5 paid search response for other, inferior, web-sites 🙂

.

Click on any Search returns which relate to Playreading Reports for Macbeth, and read them. (At the time of writing, there were two playreading reports about Macb4eth).

.

Romeo and Juliet:

If you’re using a laptop (or tablet in landscape mode) find the ‘Search Players-Shakespeare.com’ box at the right-hand-side of the page, beneath the menu. If you’;re using a smartphone you’ll find the search box after the text of this post.

That’s it. You’ve done it! (And after you’ve run your play-reading, don’t forget to write a play-reading report and submit it to Players-Shakespeare.com.

.

Also, you can use the Search box to find all the relevant posts on Players-Shakespeare.com, provided you remember to ignore the first 4 or 5 paid search response for other, inferior, web-sites 🙂 . If you’re interested in a particular play type the play name into the search box and then search; if you want to check our our Reviews, type ‘Reviews’ into the search box; or for all Playreading Reports; type ‘Playreading Reports’. I think you’ve probably got the idea by now!

Before you go, we re-start play-reading in September, for our fourth year, and we’re hoping some other groups around the world will join us play-reading Macbeth or some other play. You can find out more about this initiative by looking at our checklist of activities to prepare for the play-reading:
