Comedies on DVD 'Though she be but little she is fierce' - A Midsummer Night's Dream

The Comedy of Errors (DVD, 1978)

A joyfully exuberant RSC production of one of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies.

Conceived by Trevor Nunn, this musical presentation at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon is a carefree romp in which collapsing chairs, squirting soda siphons, funky wigs, uncompromising couplets and outrageous puns abound. The production features music by composer Guy Woolfenden, who received an Olivier Award for Best New Musical for the show's London production, and dance routines by world-renowned choreographer Gillian Lynne; Francesca Annis won a BAFTA award for her role as Luciana.

The complete and unedited production of Shakespeare's classic play performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1999 at the Barbican. King Leontes of Bohemia comes to believe that his wife Hermione is having an affair with his best friend Polixines, and orders him to be poisoned. Camillo helps Polixines escape instead, and so begins a story of jealousy, false imprisonment and mistaken identity.
