by William Shakespeare
Compared to Peter Brook's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream for the Royal Shakespeare Company, currently showing in London's West End, tonight's television treatment of Shakespeare's classic comedy of errors - the first production in a new series of Play of the Month - is extremely traditional. Performed in Edwardian costume, the play is set in 1865 and was filmed entirely on location in and around Scotney Castle, a folly set in the Kent countryside outside Tunbridge Wells.
Choreography by Geraldine Stephenson
