Titania's rage

Above see Titania and Oberon from the BBC series of re-written Shakespeare plays. Tonight was an excellent version of Midsummer Night's Dream. Maybe not very seasonal, and if you don't know the story so well, let Puck explain or watch as Titania, the Queen of the Faeries meet Bottom, after she had been given the love potion. This version is set in a holiday centre called Dream Park, but keeps the magic of the traditional Shakespeare, but with modern language, interspersed with a few well placed original lines.
