Cambridge School Shakespeare

Cambridge School Shakespeare was initially developed from the work of Rex Gibson's Shakespeare and Schools Project and has gone on to become a bestselling series in schools around the world. Each play in the series has been carefully edited to enable students to inhabit Shakespeare's imaginative world in accessible and creative ways. Actors have created their different interpretations of Shakespeare’s plays over the centuries, and we hope that every new learner will make up their own mind about them too, rather than having someone else’s interpretation handed down to them.

We don’t cut down or simplify Shakespeare’s words, as we believe that everyone should be able to experience and engage with his language and his world with no prior knowledge or special skill.
