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.

Layers of assumed identity, elaborate role-playing, and acerbic exchanges of wit reveal the real relationship between men and women in this exuberant production of one of Shakespeare's earliest comedies.

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

    " The first straight comedy of Shakespeare's that I ever read. The characters and situations are hilarious, and I love the Kate and Petruchio relationship. A must read for anyone who's even remotely interested in Shakespeare! "

    " I'm rating this 3-considering-it's-Shakespeare, not 3-compared-to-the-majority-of-books. It's fantastic, of course; just not among my favorites of his plays. "

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.
