Summary

A retelling of Shakespeare's most famous comedy, made accessible to younger listeners but still true to the Bard's verse and vocabulary. Mischief is in the air when the King and Queen of the Fairies quarrel, and Puck is left in charge of the love potion. Four young people are lost in the woods on midsummer's night. Will they find each other and true love, or will Puck's meddling leave them broken hearted and alone? A band of players prepares to entertain the Duke of Athens, but now that the fairies have turned their lead man into a donkey, will their performance be a disaster? Is there time to put everything right before this magical night is over?

Audible voice acting is superb!

This is indeed an abridged version but it is a delight. the voice acting is superb and truly aids in understanding the play.
