This special set brings together three of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, from the hilarious tale of misdirection and deception that is Twelfth Night to the slapstick humor of The Taming of Shrew and the magic and mischief that jointly characterize A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Brimming with first-class British acting – including stand-out performances from such lauded individuals as Michelle Terry, Samantha Spiro, Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry – this trio of award-winning Globe Theatre productions brilliantly underscores the humor that is inherent in each of the three Elizabethan dramas, with inventive staging, outstanding costumes and original music performed on period-style instruments providing the finishing touches to a must-have collection.

Reviews

"Although this is ensemble theatre at its finest, it’s Rylance’s contribution that puts the production among all-time Shakespeare greats. Frankly unmissable." (The Daily Telegraph on Twelfth Night)

"...it is difficult to imagine that Twelfth Night could be performed more effectively than it currently is at the Globe theatre..." (The Guardian on Twelfth Night)

"This is a crowd-pleasing production...and the laughs come thick and fast" (The Evening Standard on The Taming of the Shrew)

"Matthew Tennyson's Puck is beguilingly fey, while Luke Thompson, as a Lysander beaming with childlike over-enthusiasm, makes a professional debut of some note in this warm, comic production...a warm, comic vision ideally pitched to this performance space. [Dominic Dromgoole's] production bursts with crowd-pleasing gestures..." (The Evening Standard on A Midsummer Night's Dream ★★★★)
