    The Comedy of Errors
    Propeiler Shakespeare
    The Comedy of Errors is a brilliant piece of theatrical mechanism, a story of mounting confusion involving two pairs of twins. But it also explores the relations between lovers and between husband and wife, and ends with the warmth and reconciliation of a multiple family reunion. "Whether you love Shakespeare or fear Shakespeare, these shows can speak to you. They are thrillingly fresh collisions of the contemporary and the classical." - The Times

    Romeo and Juliet

    Romeo and Juliet
    A pair of star-cross'd lovers   -Prologue Romeo and Juliet was Shakespeare's first great tragedy, a richly lyrical love story that has long been one of the author's most popular plays for performer and audience alike. Romeo and Juliet is a simple but dramatic cautionary tale about the blindness that both love and hate can engender. As performed by Claire Bloom and Albert Finney, this lively production captures the youthful exuberance and poetic passion that characterize all of Shakespeare's early work and makes Romeo and Juliet in particular the greatest romantic creation in English Literature. This unabridged, full-cast recording is a wonderful way to experience and listen to Shakespeare out-loud.

Seamlessly weaving the original plays exquisite words into modern language, Adam McKeown eases children into Shakespeares magical world, while Antonio Javier Caparos magnificent paintings superbly capture the characters and the action.
