Like every other play in the Cambridge School Shakespeare series, Antony and Cleopatra has been specially prepared to help all students in schools and colleges. This version aims to be different from other editions of the play. It invites you to bring the play to life in your classroom through enjoyable activities that will help increase your understanding. You are encourage to make up your own mind about the play, rather than have someone else's interpretation handed down to you. Whatever you do, remember that Shakespeare wrote his plays to be acted, watched and enjoyed.
Cambridge School Shakespeare helps you deliver an active approach to classroom Shakespeare, enabling students to inhabit Shakespeare’s imaginative world in accessible and creative ways.
Dramatic experience is at the heart of the series, with students encouraged to share Shakespeare’s love of language, interest in character and sense of theatre.
