This is a great play for amateurs, with a big cast and a variety of characters, some of whom we recognise from any amateur group.
We performed it in the round, which, bearing in mind its provenance as a radio play, makes the multiple scene settings easily manageable.
It gives people a chance to tackle a little bit of Shakespeare's work, without the pressure that normally brings.
In a long career as a member of an amateur society, this play stands out as one of my favourites.
