| Fantastic, but seldom seen
This little viewed BBC event is certainly worth watching if you're a Shakespeare fan. I certainly am and A Midsummer's Night Dream (or, as us buffs call it, "The Dream") is certainly one of my favorites. Most of the cast will be not well known to those outside of the ranks of the fans of British theatre and indeed, Helen Mirren, always a delight, may well be the only name that stands out.

There have been many versions of this play presented in both as films to be shown in theaters and as films made-for-TV. The rewarding feature of British theater is that seemingly, no matter what the venue for showing the performance, the acting is nearly always up to the highest mark of stage standards.

There is no DVD or Video of which I am aware but, if this little romp crosses your screen, be sure to check it out. It's delightful and fun.
