Kings & Rogues DVD Set (Shakespeare's Globe)

Rebellion and maturity run through Shakespeare's histories like a single twisted thread, exemplified by the tearaway turned hero Hal and his forever adolescent associate Falstaff, who deserves and gets a comedy to himself in The Merry Wives of Windsor. Lives real and imagined, nobles and beggars, Tudor history and culture all spring to vivid life on the stage of The Globe Theatre in award-winning productions featuring many fine British actors and original music played by an ‘authentic’ Shakespearean pit band.
