Shakespeare's Globe productions of As You Like It, Love's Labour's Lost and Romeo & Juliet are offered in this exclusive limited edition box set.
Thea Sharrock's irresistible new production of Shakespeare's popular romantic comedy As You Like It stirs wit, sentiment, intrigue and love into a charming confection which challenges the traditional rules of romance.
Using every kind of verbal gymnastics to poke fun, Shakespeare's most intellectual comedy Love's Labour's Lost is brought to hilarious life in Dominic Dromgoole's highly entertaining production, rich in visual humour and sexual innuendo.
Dominic Dromgoole's production of Romeo & Juliet brings refreshing clarity to one of Shakespeare's most famous and best-loved tragedies. Ellie Kendrick, a truly youthful Juliet, and Adetomiwa Edun, a boyish Romeo, head an excellent cast whose period costumes point to the timelessness of parental disapproval, adolescent temperament, rivalry and violence.
Extra features include: Cast gallery and famous speeches.
Spoken in Shakespeare's English with English subtitles.

"Dominic Dromgoole's zestful production succeeds in captivating the audience to a degree that I would not have thought possible… It's a treat" (Love's Labour's Lost) The Independent
"Dromgoole is blessed with a smashing pair of young lovers. Adetomiwa Edun's Romeo is fresh, cheeky, light on his feet and full of the ebullience of young love...'' (Romeo & Juliet) Daily Telegraph
