Half the Page is a Stage™ with The WordPlay™ Shakespeare Series. This revolutionary eBook gives reader/viewers a new way to learn and love Shakespeare.
On the left page, you see Shakespeare’s text. On the right page - you see a professional filmed performance of the play. Not just short clips - the whole play.
Now teachers, students, and life long learners can finally see the play, read it, understand it - and enjoy it!
An amazing reading experience like nothing I’ve experienced before. You get the text of the full play, and right next to it, a full, brilliantly clear performance of the text by professional actors. It’s amazing to read the words and watch the performance on the same page, and it opens your eyes to what Shakespeare was (and is) saying. Just amazing. More please!
Easily the best Shakespeare book I’ve ever seen and read, since there is an entire film of the play next to the words. It instantly makes Shakespeare understandable, instantly engages my son, and instantly takes away all the confusion he has when reading such books. And it gets better - not only does he understand it more easily, but he really enjoyed the play. I hope WordPay makes Hamlt soon!
This is the third play in the series, and it is beautiful - you get to read Shakespeare and see it performed, all on the same page. The first time the actors walk onto the page is magical, and you know you’ve got something pretty cool when your kids (13 and 15) are glued to the text as if they were playing candy crush! What amazed me was how they used the note taking functions and twitter connectivity to send notes and ideas to their teacher. I feel old!
