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

3 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 173 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
The big secret live 'I am Shakespeare' webcam daytime chatroom show! : a comedy of Shakespearean identity crisis by Mark Rylance( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 169 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
Speaking the speech : an actor's guide to Shakespeare by Giles Block( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why does Shakespeare write in the way he does? And how can actors and directors get the most out of his incomparable plays? In Speaking the Speech, Giles Block - 'Master of the Words' at Shakespeare's Globe - sets out to answer these two simple questions. The result is the most authoritative, most comprehensive book yet written on speaking Shakespeare's words. Throughout the book, the author subjects Shakespeare's language to rigorous examination, illuminating his extraordinary ability to bring his characters to life by a simple turn of phrase, a breath or even a pause. Block shows how we can only fully understand these characters, and the meaning of the plays, by speaking the words out loud. Drawing on characters from across all of Shakespeare's plays - and looking in detail at Macbeth, The Winter's Tale, Hamlet, The Merchant of Venice and Much Ado About Nothing - Block covers everything the actor needs to know, including: the essential distinctions between prose, rhymed verse and unrhymed verse, and the different strategies to be used when speaking them; the difference between 'you' and 'thou'; Shakespeare's use of silence; and the vital importance of paying attention to Shakespeare's 'original' punctuation. Speaking the Speech is a book for actors and directors who want to improve their understanding of Shakespeare's language in order to speak it better. It is also a fascinating read for anyone who wants to deepen their appreciation of Shakespeare's language and the way it comes to life when spoken aloud"--Publisher description

Nice fish by Mark Rylance( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a frozen Minnesota lake, it's the end of the fishing season and two friends are out on the ice, angling for something big, something down there that, had it the wherewithal, could swallow them whole. With the existentialism of a Beckett two-handerbut set in the icy and folksy depths of the Midwest, Nice Fish is a unique portrayal of an old friendship in need of revival, a friendship between two men, a friendship between them and their environment, a friendship between them and their loves, lives, and eventual deaths. The play celebrates the many, many ways that our perspective can change in a moment. Nice Fish was originally commissioned by Joe Dowling for the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis in 2013. It was then revised for the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, directed by Claire van Kampen, and played to rave reviews in a sold-out extended run in New York in February 2013 at St. Ann's Warehouse, startting Mark Rylance and JIm Lichtscheidl, and featuring Louis Jenkins. The play transferred to London for a run in the West End at the Harold Pinter Theatre beginning in November 2016. -- from back cover
