Sylvestra le Touzel, Samuel West and David Threlfall star in Shakespeare's delightful comic fantasy. Puck is played by Becky Simpson, star of the award-winning play 'Spoonface Steinberg'. BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. In the acclaimed BBC Radio Shakespeare series, each play is introduced by Richard Eyre, former Director of the Royal National Theatre. Revitalised, original and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.
