About

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 humour of The Taming of the Shrew and the magic and mischief that jointly characterise 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 humour 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.
