Mr William Shakespeare's Plays

By Marcia Williams

Seven classic Shakespeare plays presented in an accessible comic strip format.

Take your place in the Globe Theatre of Shakespeare's day to see seven of his best-loved plays in performance. Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, The Winter's Tale and The Tempest are all brought vividly to life in Marcia Williams' gloriously accessible comic-strip versions, which include the bard's own dialogue and the rowdy remarks of the audience.

  • Mr William Shakespeare's Plays has sold over 50,000 copies since it was first published in 1998.
  • Reissued with a new cover look, this brings Marcia Williams' dramatic take on Shakespeare right up to date for a modern audience.
