Listeners are transported to Venice at the time of Shakespeare to follow the adventures and misadventures of the fool Pocket. He and his sidekicks, Drool and Jeff, become entwined in the intrigues of Venetian society—and a selection of characters and plots from the quill of William Shakespeare. Narrator Euan Morton is the perfect choice for recounting this bawdy tale. He infuses it with a sprinkling of the spirit of the Carry On movies of old, an approach that offsets the ribald and earthy language of many of the characters, not the least Pocket. Morton’s characterizations bring the full cast of this fantastical tale to life and ensure that it's never difficult to follow as it flows along at a lively pace.
