Four of William Shakespeare's plays are given a completely modern makeover. There's biting remarks and a chance at love at a TV studio (Much Ado About Nothing); murder and madness at a Glaswegian restaurant (Macbeth); insults and passion between an aristocrat and a rising politician (The Taming of the Shrew); and mayhem and love potions mix at an unusual theme-resort (A Midsummer Night's Dream). Written by
Shakespeare retold through our times.
