Funny, not Funny

Having seen this production, I've now seen all Shakespeare's comedies. This one is a grand reminder that Shakespearean comedy is about more than getting laughs. This production drags in places, but then again, so does the script. Still, it's a great way to experience the legendary siege of Troy, with all the lunacy, violence, and betrayal of humanity it must have included. As with other BBC productions, lots of great acting.
