A very stimulating selection of Shakespeares sonnets which would give anyone who was not familiar with them an appetite to look further. Like all Shakespeare, it takes careful listening to get the inner meaning. The two actors reciting the sonnets on various subjects, from absence to jealousy, spoke clealy and in measured tones so that all the words were perfectly audible and intelligible. The musical segues were, I felt, a trifle tiresome and not that necessary to enhance the words but they did not detract from the overall enjoyable experience. Go before it ends.
