I am working with Heuristic Media on iPad app editions of Shakespeare’s plays.

The project is currently on hold until we secure funding.

We hope to produce an extraordinary series of Shakespeare Apps that will allow students and theatregoers to dig deep into the greatest author of English Literature. They will help a wider audience engage with the plays and encourage them to see and hear live performances of Shakespeare. Users will be able to read, navigate and understand the plays, and set them within their historical, literary and geographical context.

The apps will be structured around interactive and easily navigable texts of the plays. Illustrations, maps, glosses, commentary, talking heads and audio recordings will be accessible at one touch. There will also be article pieces on themes, pronunciation, performance, historical context and more.
