"Sit in on nine intensive acting workshops conducted by the legendary John Barton of the Royal Shakespeare Company. How does this worldrenowned troupe make classic plays accessible to modern audiences, without compromising the texts integrity?

The answers come from Barton and 21 of Britains finest actors, including Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love, Iris), Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindlers List), Peggy Ashcroft (A Passage to India), Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings, Gods and Monsters), Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation), and David Suchet (Agatha Christies Poirot).
