Adapted by renowned author and Shakespeare scholar Leon Garfield, in collaboration with leading academic lights, these beautiful, dramatic and rewarding tales are masterly abridged renditions of the classic texts, fully faithful to the narrative and language that makes Shakespeare the most loved and respected playwright history has ever produced.

A Midsummer Night's Dream (1992)
The beauty of cel animation is that it can make the impossible seem possible. So the spirits of the haunted wood and the bewitching transformations of Titania, Oberon and the innocent tradesman Bottom come to life with a treatment that complements Shakespeare's spectacular imagery.
Richard III (1994)
The richly rewarding technique of painting on glass has been uniquely explored for this bleak, blackly comic portrayal of an historical tyrant. No compassion is shown by the hunchback King Richard, whose unquenchable thirst for power destroys his wife, his brother, his best friend and his nephews, the little princes in the tower.
