Shakespeare's most imaginative and merry play is set in an enchanted wood amidst fairies and sprites.
When Oberon, King of the Fairies, uses his magic upon four runaway lovers in a midsummer wood outside Athens, chaos ensues. Who really loves whom? Meanwhile, a band of well-meaning but bungling local actors have their rehearsal sabotaged by the mischievous Puck, who bewitches their leader, Bottom, and Titania, the Fairy Queen. The result is a lively and anarchic comedy which can only be resolved by an elaborate disentangling of spells.
Hermia is played by Amanda Root, Oberon by David Harewood, and Bottom by Roy Hudd.

Shakespeare is rolling in his grave.
I love Shakespeare, but these are the worst narrator I have EVER heard.
That it was a play by William Shakespeare.
The completely faux Jamaican accents of Oberon and his queen completely ruined the tale. They were almost offensive.
I cannot recommended this audio book. Offensive is putting it mildly.
In all the years that I have been a member of Audible, this is the very first time I can say a book was simply awful. Save your money save your time.

A great performance of a Shakespeare favorite
