Midsummer night's dream

"When Oberon, King of the Fairies, uses his magic upon four runaway lovers in a midsummer wood outside Athens, chaos ensues. Who really loves whom ? Meanwhile, a band of well-meaning but bungling local actors have their rehearsal sabotaged by the mischievous Puck, who bewitches their leader, Bottom, and Titania, the Fairy Quenn. The result is lively and anarchic comedy, which can only be resolved by an elaborate disentangling of spells."--Publisher.

  • "Sylvestra Le Touzel, Sam West and David Threlfall star in Shakespeare's delightful comic fantasy. BBC radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. This fresh and vibrant production brilliantly reflects those decades of experience. Fairy magic wreaks havoc amongst the lovers and midsummer madness takes over as they tread the delicate line between fancy and reality. In the acclaimed BBC Radio Shakespeare series, each play is introduced by Richard Eyre, former Director of the Royal National Theatre. Revitalised, original and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium."@en
