King Lear [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Ian McKellen
King Lear [DVD] DVD ~ Ian McKellen
5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps it stagey, 19 Sep 2013
I went to see this production in Stratford and it had everyone gripped despite being a long play and I'd taken novice theatre goers! They were engrossed, despite not understanding all of the language! If you are teaching it for A-Level, like me to a less able group, this provides a well edited, stage-like performance with fabulous dramatic acting. Their responses included "I thought Shakespeare would be boring", "That made it make sense" and "Although I couldn't understand the language I now understand what's going on". Can't ask much more than that.

It is clearly written and informative for an A-Level audience. I use it as a back-up to ensure I've not forgotten anything. Easily done in the highly stressful environment of education today. It will give you the confidence that you do know your stuff! Easy to use and I actually read it from cover to cover because it is a good read.
