Many directors wish they could produce a Shakespearean tragedy without frustrating audiences and young actors with complex language. Here is love's greatest story and history's greatest play made accessible for modern performers. This is not a cutting or reworking, but a version for those interested in producing a full Shakespearean work without losing their audience in archaic phrases and obscure references. The famous speeches all retain their original language, but difficult or confusing passages have been translated to formal, modern, English, while maintaining the original rhyme schemes and meters. All of the speeches have been included here, though some have beentightened for the sake of pacing. This is a version that leaves both audience and actors satisfied while immersing them in a great work of art.
