Background & History
Friendly Folio uniquely provides Shakespeare's First Folio Scripts in a user-friendly, modern format for actors, teachers, directors, workshop-leaders and students. See below for how we have simply 'untangled' Shakespeare's text.
You can purchase these scripts from this website for a very reasonable price. Friendly Folio also offers workshops on how to work with and study Shakespeare as a living playwright, using methods available to theatrical practitioners during his lifetime.
You can see examples of how we present Scripts and Cue Scripts on our Free Sample page. You can also find out in which of Shakespeare plays a character appears, or all the alternative names for this person, by using our Search facility on the Parts / Sides page.
To find out more please read the What We Do section. To order a Friendly Folio script please search one of our online databases...
Friendly Folio is run by Patrick Tucker & Christine Ozanne of the Original Shakespeare Company.
