Continuing their admirable endeavor of recording all 38 of Shakespeare's plays--uncut and fully dramatized--Arkangel Complete Shakespeare presents listeners with their latest accomplishment, a three-part series of HENRY VI. Besides the powerful David Tennant performing the title role, supporting cast members are all impressive. Listeners can look forward to Kelly Hunter as Queen Margaret, played with energetic ruthlessness, as well as Clive Merrison's ambitious Duke of York. Any one of the Arkangel recordings is well worth collecting, and this is no exception. It's sure to thrill longtime Shakespeare fans, as well as new students of The Bard.
