The Complete Arkangel Shakespeare is a notable series of audio drama presentations of all 38 plays of William Shakespeare, released from 1998 onwards on cassette and then on CD. The plays are unabridged and based on The Complete Pelican Shakespeare, published by Penguin Classics. The production features nearly 400 actors, almost all past or present members of the Royal Shakespeare Company. The cast members of each play are listed below.

The Complete Arkangel Shakespeare won the 2004 Audie Award for "Best Audio Drama".[1]

The logo on the box cover features a figure of Shakespeare composed entirely from books, reminiscent of the Renaissance Italian painting The Librarian by Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
