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 Much Ado, the clarity of radio allows the wonderful verbal sparring between Beatrice and Benedick to sparkle as high comedy and melodrama mix magically in a combination of prose and verse.

Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. Download and start listening now!

    " One of the first Shakespeare plays I fell in love with (after Hamlet and Henry V), and it's still in my personal top three for the comedies (with The Tempest and Twelfth Night). "

    " Beatrice and Benedick are one of my favourite literary couples. Their scenes together sparkle with wit, and they come across as equals, which is quite remarkable for a play that was written over 400 years ago. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
