‘If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.’

Wild, surprising and funny, this fiery new ★★★★ (Guardian, Telegraph) version of Shakespeare’s comedy is directed by Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes and is infused with the mesmeric nostalgia and soulful music of the world of Americana.

Audio Description available for this production.
