Theatre and media

See the play

An essential resource when studying any drama is a means of seeing it in performance. If no live performance is available, or if you are required to compare and contrast productions — always a very good idea — then DVDs or videos are an excellent resource. There are many film productions available, and some of these are mentioned in Approaching exams and essays: Engaging with the text.

Listen to the play

Audio CD or taped productions are also very useful, particularly to allow the listener to concentrate on the flow of the verse. Readily available as audio CDs are the Old Vic Production with Derek Jacobi, produced in 1997, and the BBC Radio 3 production from 1999.
