“Innovation can be expensive so it is helpful when you know that what you are doing is driven by demand, that people are potentially interested in it. We didn’t develop this for the sake of having something new, but as a way to add more value that people wanted to what we were already doing.”
dilaycock's insight:

The Classical Comics versions are great. If you want to try before you buy, go to their website, where various Acts from a number of plays can be downloaded.
