The search to find engaging and inspiring ways to introduce children and young adults to Shakespeare has resulted in a wide variety of approaches to producing and adapting Shakespeare's plays and the stories and characters at their heart. This book explores the range of productions, versions, and adaptations of Shakespeare aimed particularly at children or young people. It is the only comprehensive overview of its kind, engaging with a range of genres - drama, prose narrative, television and film - and including both British and international examples. Abigail Rokison covers stage and screen productions, shortened versions, prose narratives and picture books (including Manga), animations and original novels, plays and films rewriting Shakespeare. The book combines an informative guide to the productions and adaptations discussed with critical analysis of their relative strengths.
