There are also superb performances from Alan Ayckbourn, Amanda Root and Samuel West. The text is illustrated throughout with photographs from notable productions, including Kenneth Branagh's 1993 film and RSC productions featuring Harriet Walter, Judi Dench, Helen Mirren and Janet Suzman. The book also takes you behind the scenes with reproductions of set drawings, costume designs and scene edits, including costume renderings from the 1958 production at the Shakespeare Memorial Theater. As well as the playtext, there are articles covering a range of topics including 'In Production: Much Ado About Nothing through the Years' by Jeffrey Kahan, 'Much Ado About Nothing in Popular Culture' by Douglas Lanier, 'A Voice Coach's Perspective on Speaking Shakespeare' by Andrew Wade and 'In the Age of Shakespeare' by Thomas Garvey.The Sourcebooks Shakespeare Much Ado About Nothing is an invaluable tool for students of all ages from GCSE to A Level and beyond.
