A fine rendition

Considering the possibility for histrionics in this play this production is nicely contained within the beauties in the text, nothing too over the top - It's a good clear crisp rendition of a rarely performed play. The actors do an excellent job delineating the various characters so it's easy to follow the rather complicated plot. Alas, Audible does not provide a cast list.
