Audio Theater • 1 hr. • Audio Program • © 2003

A narrator helps compress the action of Shakespeare's charming comedy into less than an hour, telling us what's occurring and then letting the characters give us their better-known scenes. The program, "from the archives of CBC Radio," has a copyright of 2003, but judging by the acting (Hermia reminds one more of Virginia Mayo than Judi Dench) and music (composed for this program, and quite enjoyable), it was recorded in the early '50s at the latest. Still, the acting runs from adequate to excellent, and the narration is polished; the whole will make a pleasant, if abbreviated, version of the play for those who find its age quaint rather than off-putting.
