It's our final episode of our series on A Midsummer Night's Dream! As always, we watch multiple productions of the play and share our thoughts. 

Join us as we discuss 1999's film version directed by Michael Hoffman which features a star-studded cast and incredible scenery alongside the National Theatre's 2019 production starring Gwendoline Christie as Titania which was notable for swapping Titania and Oberon's language for most of the play. 

You'll also learn why Elyse struggles to enjoy productions of this play and the pitfalls in which she believes most productions fall.

Shakespeare Anyone? is created and produced by Kourtney Smith and Elyse Sharp.

Music is "Neverending Minute" by Sounds Like Sander.
