The RSC Shakespeare

Introducing William Shakespeare and Others: Collaborative Plays

Shakespeare and OthersPalgrave Macmillan is delighted to announce the upcoming title William Shakespeare and Others: Collaborative Plays, published in association with the RSC.

For the first time in over a hundred years, acclaimed Shakespeare scholars Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen bring together the fascinatingly varied body of plays that became known as 'The Shakespeare Apocrypha'. Highlights include the whole text of Sir Thomas More, including the only scene from any play to survive in Shakespeare’s own handwriting, and the domestic murder tragedy Arden of Faversham, in which Shakespeare’s hand has been detected by recent computer-assisted analysis.

This pioneering work is the first ever Shakespeare edition to include the 1602 edition of Thomas Kyd's pioneering The Spanish Tragedy, with 'additions' that the latest research attributes to Shakespeare. As the companion to the bestselling The RSC Shakespeare: The Complete Works, this new edition has all the features of the RSC Shakespeare series: inimitable introductions by Jonathan Bate, rigorous textual editing led by Eric Rasmussen and interviews with directors and actors who have staged the plays, including RSC Artistic Directors Terry Hands, Michael Boyd and Gregory Doran.
