Enjoyable listening

I loved all the retellings except the Tempest, which I just felt missed the point of the play - the actresses faltered on some lines too which I noticed and don't usually notice. However, the retellings were a great introduction to some of the less popular plays, like A Winter's Tale. Thoroughly enjoyable anyway.
