Inspired by the spirit of his original plays, these four unique and entertaining films bring Shakespeare to a 21st century audience.

Much Ado About Nothing
Forced to share a studio sofa every night, regional news presenters Beatrice and Benedick appear to hate one another, but does their apparent hostility mark passions of a different kind?

Enticed by his ambitious but troubled wife, chef Joe Macbeth begins to discover the seductive possibilities of power. But to what lengths will he go to achieve it?

The Taming of the Shrew
Kate is an opposition MP who is instructed to find a husband to make her more electable. When the eccentric Petruchio bursts onto the scene, a very surprising romance unfolds.

A Midsummer Night's Dream
Set during a weekend in a holiday park, this is a romantic comedy about four waring couples, a donkey's head and a gaggle of fairies.
