    The Comedy of Errors
    Propeiler Shakespeare
    The Comedy of Errors is a brilliant piece of theatrical mechanism, a story of mounting confusion involving two pairs of twins. But it also explores the relations between lovers and between husband and wife, and ends with the warmth and reconciliation of a multiple family reunion.

    Season Eight - Adapted

    Macbeth

    Macbeth
    The DVD Edition
    Macbeth: The DVD Edition includes everything you've come to expect from the Folger Shakespeare Library editions of Shakespeare's plays -- facing-page explanatory notes, scene-by-scene plot summaries, illustrations from the Folger archives -- combined here with a bonus DVD of a performance of Macbeth recorded before a rapt audience in the Folger's intimate Elizabethan Theatre.

Macbeth: The DVD Edition is the perfect volume for those encountering the play for the first time and for those finding brilliant new insights into a classic. THIS DVD EDITION INCLUDES: • DVD of the 2008 Folger Theatre/Two River Theater Company production -- with over 50 minutes of special features, including interviews with the directors, actors, designers, and scholars • Foreword by directors Teller and Aaron Posner on the staging of Macbeth • Freshly edited text based on the 1623 First Folio • Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play • A key to the play's famous lines and phrases • An introduction to reading Shakespeare's language in Macbeth • Illustrations from the Folger Shakespeare Library's vast holdings of rare books • An essay by Susan Snyder that provides a modern perspective on the play

    Romeo and Juliet

    Romeo and Juliet
    A pair of star-cross'd lovers   -Prologue Romeo and Juliet was Shakespeare's first great tragedy, a richly lyrical love story that has long been one of the author's most popular plays for performer and audience alike. Romeo and Juliet is a simple but dramatic cautionary tale about the blindness that both love and hate can engender. As performed by Claire Bloom and Albert Finney, this lively production captures the youthful exuberance and poetic passion that characterize all of Shakespeare's early work and makes Romeo and Juliet in particular the greatest romantic creation in English Literature. This unabridged, full-cast recording is a wonderful way to experience and listen to Shakespeare out-loud.
