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.
