3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"I Am Shakespeare" is Mark Rylance's fascinating, witty and characteristically exuberant dramatic contribution to the Shakespeare authorship debate. Is it possible that the son of an illiterate tradesman, from a small market town in Warwickshire, could have written the greatest dramatic works the world has ever seen? Mark Rylance is one of a number of leading actors who seriously question the idea that William Shakespeare was the man behind the thirty-seven plays that have moved, inspired and amazed generations. First performed at Chichester Festival Theatre in 2007, Rylance's provocative play introduces us to the main candidates and their respective claims whilst asking fundamental questions about what makes a genius, and why it all matters anyway

Prospero's books an adaptation of The Tempest by William Shakespeare ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Prospero, once the Duke of Milan, now reigns over a faraway island, living there with his only daughter, Miranda. Twelve years earlier Prospero's brother, in league with the King of Naples, had exiled Prospero and his daughter from their home. One evening, Prospero imagines creating a storm powerful enough to bring his old enemies to his island. He begins to write a play about this tempest, speaking aloud the lines of each of his characters. It is the story of Prospero's past, and his revenge."--Title screens. As adapted by Peter Greenaway, the film envisions a magical realm of exquisite beauty, where the innocence of love and dreams of revenge collide to create a tempest. Greenaway structures the film around the 24 books Prospero took into exile, and while remaining faithful to the text, the treatment and delivery of that text could hardly be more different

Twelfth night ( Visual )

"One of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies, Twelfth Night was 'blissfully reborn' (The Daily Telegraph) for the 2012/13 season at London's Globe Theatre, under the direction of Tim Carroll. The hilarious tale of misdirection and deception is performed here by an all-male cast, as it would have been in Shakespeare's day, with Mark Rylance playing Olivia and Roger Lloyd Pack as the hapless Sir Andrew Aguecheek. The production also marks Stephen Fry's triumphant return to the stage as the pompous Malvolio, ridiculous in his yellow stockings"--Container

Twelfth Night Live from Shakespeare's Globe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the household of Olivia (Mark Rylance), two campaigns are being quietly waged-one by the lovesick Orsino (Liam Brennan) for the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against Olivia's steward, the pompous Malvolio (Stephen Fry). When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola (Johnny Flynn) to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows. This all-male production of Twelfth Night, filmed at Shakespeare's Globe using carefully recreated authentic clothing, music, and dance, was deemed "sensational" by the London Telegraph and "a knock out audience success" by the Observer
