Something Written in the State of Denmark: An Actor's Year with the Royal Shakespeare Company

Keith Osborn

PaperBack (01 May 2010)
Following in the footsteps of Nick Asbury's bestselling Exit Pursued by a Badger, actor and Royal Shakespeare Company alumnus Keith Osborn tells the story of the company's extraordinary 2008/9 season in Stratford and London, with much drama on and off stage.

Keith appeared in Gregory Doran's acclaimed productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Love's Labours Lost and, of course, Doran's Hamlet with David Tennant in the title role. Keith's blog was followed by thousands of loyal readers, the book contains some new material covering the early parts of the season and a short account of the BBC's filming of Hamlet in the summer of 2009, rounded out with many rehearsal and production photos taken throughout the season.
