Celebrated author Michael Morpurgo's fresh retellings of Shakespeare's timeless stories for schools and families.
The former Children’s Laureate relocates Shakespeare’s characters to contemporary settings to unlock the vivid drama at the heart of the tales. They are read and performed by actors, for young people aged six to 16.
Michael Morpurgo's Tales From Shakespeare will be available free for UK schools, with a new Tale uploaded at 10am every Friday for five weeks, then made available for anyone to buy and watch for up to seven days from the following Monday. Each performance runs for 45 minutes.
