“Your ebook was a godsend because it was distinct, easily accessible and very child friendly. The resource I obtained from you has been used again and again”

M Browning

“I have used No Sweat Shakespeare’s versions of both Hamlet and Macbeth with my 11th and 12th grade students. I can honestly say that your texts allowed my students to fully engage in Shakespeare’s text and, most importantly, to enjoy them. They found the story format much easier to read than the original script format.”

Lisa Melody

“I needed a version of the play that was not a “watered down” text that my students could understand and get the meaning from so that they could relate to the themes of the play without getting lost in the language. This version has been instrumental in my students’ understanding and I am so glad I found your website.”

Steven Shelton

“The book is authentic, and very close to Shakespeare’s original plot. It also has the WHOLE story there, and doesn’t miss parts out. It explores the characters well, for example when it describes Romeo’s mood… I rate it 5 stars.” 

Jonathan Howard

“I read the Tempest by Shakespeare a couple of times, and I’m not used to that style of language and grammar. Just to be sure I had all the details, I downloaded The Tempest from you. It helped clear a couple things up for me and added some minor details that really helped when it came test time.” 

Kevin Thorpe

“The service you offer is absolutely fantastic and allowed my daughter to be able to understand the play in modern day language, which made reading and following the original much easier. It is with no undertatement the reason she did so well in her English exams. Probably the best money I have ever spent on her education!” 

Christine Daly

“I was never too keen on reading Shakespeare, as it is written in very old English and I found it difficult to understand. This book has changed my mind entirely, and made me want to read the other books and try out proper Shakespeare.”

Aaron Jordan

“These are wonderful teaching tools. Language is key in teaching Shakespeare and I often start my students with passages from the literal text, juxtaposed with the same passage from No Sweat Shakespeare . I like the download option; it is perfect for my purposes. I can cut & paste to create my own lesson plans.” 

Patrick Kreischer

“My students patted themselves on the pack for having a deeper understanding of the material than their friends in other classes. Clearly, using your texts was a “win-win” situation for both teacher and students! Thank you for making a master story teller accessible to all students.”

Act 1, Scene 1

.

It was a hot morning in Messina. The only thing that interrupted the clear blue of the sky was the wispy smoke that rose lazily from Mount Etna. As usual, the governor’s villa was filled with young people enjoying themselves with music, sports and conversation. An ensemble of minstrels played and sang fashionable songs that they had brought from Florence; two muscular fellows wrestled, cheered on by a group of spectators of both sexes, while the garden was dotted with pairs and trios, sitting in the shade of the huge pines, chatting.

Leonato’s villa was magnificent. He had carved out his vineyards and orchards from a countryside that was otherwise covered with lava and overgrown with cacti. From the lawn in front of the villa there was a spectacular view of the blue ocean and the Italian mainland. It was a place of pleasure, with tennis courts , gardens, and even a maze. Leonato considered himself to be the most fortunate of men. His life was filled with pleasure. He was surrounded by a loving family – his daughter, Hero; his niece, Beatrice; and his brother Antonio – who all lived with him. He was always ready to entertain guests and there was never a shortage of fun. Life at the governor’s villa was splendid.

On that particular summer morning an officer arrived while Leonato was in the middle of a fencing bout with Beatrice. She was winning. He was used to that and, being the man he was, he did not show any false pride, but congratulated her on each hit. The officer waited politely until they had finished. Leonato acknowledged his defeat with exaggerated bows to the cheering guests then shook the officer’s hand. The young man gave him a letter.

Leonato opened it. Hero and Beatrice watched his face as he read. His eyes opened wide then the creases around them were animated as he grinned delightedly. He held the letter up high as the young people gathered around him.

‘I learn from this letter, that Don Pedro of Arragon is arriving in Messina today,’ he said. A wave of excitement swept round the group and there was a buzz of anticipation.

‘He must be very close by now,’ the messenger told them. ‘He wasn’t more than nine miles away when I left him.’
