Although I have been a fan of Shakespeare for many years, it is only really within the last three months where I have been taking it upon myself to study the plays and his life in further detail.

Partially inspired by the Reduced Shakespeare Company, I have always thought it would be nice to present a Complete Works play with a more traditional feel. I have done some research, found this site to be one of the most useful of the lot in all fairness!

Anyway, I have finished a first draft of my Complete Works in a chronological order discovered on Wikipedia - different to the one stated on here, and split them into 5 sections for 5 acts. It was at this moment when I thought it would be great to show these in separate performances, typically for schools where you can give a much wider overview of Shakespeare. Naturally, to accompany this I have been starting to write study guides to accompany each play.

After starting to write the summary of the act, I have dramatically changed the first act, which I have only just finished, along with the summary.

I was wondering if I could get some assistance -I anyone would be so kind - to have a look over the summary and my "introduction to Shakespeare" to ensure I have my facts in place as many of the play overviews can be quite confusing in places!

Thanks

Hi Gary,

Feel free to post your progress here and I'll be happy to take a look at it. I'm sure others might as well.

Thanks, Ron.

There are some pieces that I have had to adapt to fit, so is currently summarised in the point of view of my performance. The main part that I am still trying to get my head around is in the Taming of the Shrew, where Bianca and Katherina are arguing where Bianca's hands are bound at the start of Act 2 Scene 1...I'm after the reason of this brief argument summarised in a sentence.

I know that it stems from jealousy, but for Katherina to be jealous of Bianca, and the mention of Hortensio & Gremio seem to be the crux of this...
