This is a new B-format paperback edition of Peter Hall's best-selling guide to acting Shakespeare has sold over 10,000 copies in two previous editions. This is a new edition for a new generation – compact and concise with the facts, the way modern students and actors need it. The pay off the book according to Sir Peter is simple – it will make you a better actor!
Shakespeare tells the actor when to go fast and when to go slow; when to pause, when to come in on cue and when to accent a word. His text is full of such clues. Shakespeare heard the lines as he wrote them. Shakespeare’s Advice to the Players makes watching or reading Shakespeare a richer experience, for audiences as well as actors.
'Acting students and young professionals will flock to learn from him….passionate, entertaining… Indisputably wise and true… Wonderfully illuminating' Telegraph
'As fascinating to readers as it is to actors' The Independent
'Immensely engaging… There will be many a director, performer and teacher who will only be too grateful to him in the future' Directors Guild of Great Britain
'This is the most fabulously hybrid book – part actor’s handbook, part memoir – what is most inspiring is Hall’s conviction that form can be as exciting as feeling/ Acting in this way is more than just listening to Shakespeare – it is responding to Shakespeare’s linear needs' The Observer
