    "Wonderful Production"

    Recorded Shakespeare just doesn't get any better than this! Despite the time that has obviously passed since it was made (Guilgud and Ashcroft are long dead, after all!), the sound quality of "The Winter's Tale" is very good. And the performances are just wonderful. "Winter's Tale" is rather odd in the abrupt twists and turns and seemingly inexplicable plot line. The play walks an interesting line between tragedy and comedy. Hearing such storied actors performing the piece offers a great way to experience "The Winter's Tale" without actually going to the theater. The Shakespeare plays offered by Audible are terrific bargains!
