Hamlet: A User's Guide

Capa
Nick Hern Books, 1996 - 216 páginas

An intensely practical account of the way Hamlet actually works on stage.

Writing with the benefit of inside experience of many productions, actor and director Michael Pennington takes us through Hamlet scene by scene, and character by character. He also gives a personal account of his own encounters with the play, and of its staging through the ages.
