The Dramatic Works of William Shakespeare: Comedy

by Produced by BBC and Time-Life Films Other

Three plots intertwine: the entangled love affairs of Demetrius, Helena, Lysander and Hermia; the comic performance of "a play within a play" by the tradesmen of Athens; and the antics in fairyland of King Oberon and Queen Titania. This play of Shakespeare's stars Helen Mirren, Peter McEnery, Pippa Guard, Brian Glover and Phil Daniels. "They are all accomplished actors, but the director has given the extra dimension of using them brilliantly in terms of television" says the New York Times.
