‘From Bard to Verse’ is Shakespeare’s greatest hits packaged into ‘bite size’ chunks and performed by the UK’s hottest acting and comedy talent straight down the lens of the camera. Each fifteen minute episode consists of a series of quickfire monologues taken from the full range of Shakespeare’s complete works, both plays and soliloquies.
The extracts are filmed in modern, resonant locations and packaged together using contemporary, upbeat graphics and music. The overall effect gives ‘From Bard to Verse’ an accessibility not usually associated with interpretations of the ‘Bard’.
