A lovely performance

I thoroughly enjoyed this dramatisation of A Midsummer Night's Dream. I originally downloaded this to tune up my knowledge of the text prior to teaching it. But have enjoyed it as much more than a teaching aid. I particularly enjoyed the character of Bottom who was brought to life brilliantly and showed off that humour that Shakespeare can bring, engaging even the youngest audience.

Great fun!

A very entertainting play concerning love out of balance, love triangles, fairies and donkeys heads!

Highlights have to be Nick Bottom and the performers! Genuinely very funny after nearly 500 years!

Recording, music, acting and sound quality were top quality.

A Vivid Dream

Well nigh perfectly rendered characters in this beautifully done production. I recommend it to all.
