This stunning collection of four of William Shakespeare’s best loved comedies is now yours to own with this attractive eight disc box set. Each of the four titles comes to you as a unique, full-cast dramatisation from the BBC, originally broadcast on Radio 3 between 1998 and 2001.
Some of Britain’s best acting talent, including Doctor Who star David Tennant breathes life into these revamped classics from the man responsible for arguably the greatest English literature of all time.
Enjoy the light-hearted love story Much Ado About Nothing in which Tennant plays the sarcastic, witty Benedick, before taking a mythical departure to the strange world of fairies and ‘rude mechanicals’ in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, starring Sylvestra le Touzel, Samuel West and David Threlfall.
Next, Twelfth Night sweeps listeners into an uproarious tale of misplaced affection starring Michael Maloney, Josette Simon and Anne-Marie Duff. Finally, ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ stars Ruth Mitchell as the stubborn ‘shrew’, Kathea, who gives no end of grief to her suitor, Petruchio.
Promising high quality recordings, exemplary acting and perfect pace, this CD audiobook collection is essential listening for fans of all things Shakespeare.
