This 168-page Commentary is a companion resource to the Teaching Copy (q.v.). The only difference is that the suggested responses to the study tasks have been relocated to a separate Answers Booklet at the end of the resource file so that teachers may withhold them if they wish, or dispense them on an ongoing basis so that students can explore the play for themselves, then undertake a self-assessment process and at the same time deepen their understanding of how the play (and drama in general) ‘works’. This version of the resource, as does the Teaching Copy, effectively supports preparation for GCE A Level assessment, as well as IB and AP.
