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.The trees and shrubs resonate with declarations of love and confessions of assumed identity in this exciting new production, where the intimacy of radio brilliantly recreates the closed-off, magical world of the Forest of Arden.Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.More

Why such terrible singing?

Helena Bonham Carter's Rosalind is unique, perfect, vibrant.
Unfortunately, the fool's songs are sung in a nasal, saccharine, twang reminiscent of high school pop ballads.
