This production of Shakespeare’s play is staged for the screen by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Directed by Erica Whyman, the play is set across a 16-year span from the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II to the moon landings. This play is probably best known for its (in)famous stage direction "Exit pursued by a bear", but is so much more, and can be seen as a comedy or a romance, depending on your point of view.

"The production, as a whole, bursts with imagination and energy" (The Guardian ★★★)

"Autolycus can be a touchstone for personal taste and Anne Odeke was delicious here across the whole gamut, from singing voice through to cream-cake comedy" (The Arts Desk ★★★)

“Enchanting” (The Times ★★★★)

“Engaging and high-spirited” (The Stage ★★★★)
