Product Description

Cambridge School Shakespeare: King Richard III (3rd edition)

Edited by: Rex Gibson, Linzy Brady, Jane Coles

The Rex Gibson active approach to classroom Shakespeare enables students to inhabit Shakespeare’s imaginative world in accessible and creative ways, sharing Shakespeare's love of language, interest in character and sense of theatre.

Substantially revised and extended, classroom activities are thematically organised in distinctive stagecraft, writing, language, characters and themes features.


  • A running synopsis of action is included for every page of script.
  • 'Stagecraft' boxes give information on stage designs, directors' approaches and actors views on past performances and offer opportunities for students to explore and contribute their own ideas on staging.
  • 'Write about it' boxes give information about writing about Shakespeare and suggest activities to help students with their own writing in response to the play. Students will be helped to translate discussion into high quality writing; look at 'points of dispute'; structure various forms of writing; write responsively and sensitively; provide evidence to support their arguments.
  • Extended glossaries aligned with the play script for ease of reference provide clear explanation of key terms.
  • Each act is followed by 'Looking back' sections with further notes, illustrations and activities.
  • Comprehensive and extended endnotes with illustrations and activities are linked to the boxed features and give further information and opportunities for exploration of stagecraft, language, characters and themes.
  • New 'Writing about' sections focus on writing about Shakespeare in general and on the play in particular.
  • A rich selection of exciting colour photos with information on performances appear throughout.
