Help with Playing Shakespeare

As well as showing you how to use the features of Players-Shakespeare.com, we also provide help with how to play Shakespeare, particularly in a play-reading situation.

The advice we give comes not from us, but from Shakespeare (or whoever wrote the plays) himself. He provides lost of help with how to act his parts, if you listen out for his help. Of course it is up to the actor to decide how he should play any speech or scene, but it might be more than a little helpful to listen out for what the author thinks.


The following are the  Help Videos that we’ve published so far:


Hamlet’s (Shakespeare’s?) advice to the Players

Shakespeare’s use of Blank Verse (from A1S1 of The Merchant of Venice)


Let’s Play!!!
