Abstract

This was a stylish, well-conceived production, which made sense and meaning from what is probably Shakespeare’s most delicate, and ‘English’, of comedies. The piece calls for strong ensemble playing, a full stage of equals rather than a few strong parts dominating the story. The Port Elizabeth Shakespearean Festival pulled it off marvelously.
