Shakespeare Retold - DVD available


Did you see the fabulous modern take on Macbeth last night on the ABC? Macbeth is part of a fab BBC series called Shakespeare retold. The series is daring, sexy, sometimes violent, clever and utterly riveting.

CSU Library has the complete series of Shakespeare Retold on DVD. The series comprises:
  • Much Ado about Nothing (the two leads are TV news presenters)
  • A Midsummer Night's Dream (set at a holiday resort)
  • The Taming of the Shrew (Kate is the leader of the Opposition party in the UK)
  • Macbeth (Macbeth is a leather clad chef in a three star restaurant and the witches are three garbos)

Read more about the series on the BBC website.

Check the Library catalogue for location details.
