Summary:
Shakespeare is rightly considered the world's greatest playwright for the soaring beauty of his language, for his profound insight into human nature, for the truths he dramatized and for the realism of the characters he created. He was, and remains, a superb entertainer.

Featuring some of Britain's most distinguished theatrical talent, these DVD's now are the number-one choice for continuing personal enjoyment. Programs in this 5 Play DVD Giftbox Set include:

OTHELLO
Perhaps his greatest triumph as a stage play. When the evil Iago plants the seeds of doubt in Othello's mind about Desdemona's fidelity, audiences around the world have been held spellbound. Starring Anthony Hopkins as Othello and Bob Hoskins as Iago.

A play about relationships, filled with manipulation, deception, jealousy and finally self-understanding.

Running Time: 208 minutes

JULIUS CAESAR
Breaking all conventional rules of drama, Shakespeare creates neither a clear-cut hero nor a Villain. Instead, this great tragedy presents complicated human beings in agonizing conflict with one another, and themselves. Starring Richard Pasco, Keith Michell and Charles Gray as Caesar.

Running Time: 161 minutes

MACBETH
This savage tragedy is one of Shakespeare's most enduringly popular. Told by a trio of witches that he is fated to become King of Scotland, the warrior Macbeth, aided by his wife, in his quest for power murders his king and assumes the throne. The two embark on a guilt-ridden reign of terror. Starring Nicol Williamson and Jane Lapotire.

Running Time: 148 minutes

ROMEO AND JULIET
One of the great love stories of all time and a "hit " for over 400 years. Full of passion and exquisite language, it expresses love in its infinite variety more than any other work in the English language. Stars Sir John Gielgud, Rebecca Saire, Patrick Ryecart.

Running Time: 167 minutes

HAMLET
In this richly costumed production, the greatest tragedy ever written maintains all the tension of a murder mystery as it examines the fundamental issues of justice, guilt and death.

The director's innovative film technique creates an intimate performance that succeeds extremely well on small as well as large screen.

Hamlet, the most complex of all Shakespeare's characters is considered the greatest challenge for an actor. Derek Jacobi is a superb choice in the rigorous tradition of Shakespearian acting. Stars Derek Jacobi, Patrick Stewart, Eric Porter and Claire Bloom.

Running Time: 222 minutes.
