I do not believe there could be a print version as the live acting is so essential to the teaching that is done. I suppose that I could read Hamlet, but listening to it performed is so much better. I have listened to a number of the SmartPass audio renditions of Shakespeare and have gone from being confused about the content, the action, the issues involved and even the language, to being able to watch Shakespeare and really enjoy it. The Pass Master (Mistress?) does such an excellent job of pulling in the understanding of the way things are moving forward, to tying in to the political commentary that is being made, to just really beginning to understand the motivations of the characters. Take the long path from the beginning and listen with all of the instruction and then just listen to the play at the end (no commentary on the replay except as necessary to set the scene). I love SmartPass.
It is Shakespeare's greatest story.
Very affecting, it has so much sadness in it. If people would just talk there could have been a lot less bloodshed, but isn't that the way it is?
