David Kerr and BBC are Bringin’ Back The Bard

In honor of the 400th anniversary of Bill Shakespeare’s death, David Kerr together with the BBC have recreated A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set to air May 30th. The trailer for the film is forthcoming but with an all-star cast comprised of John Hannah, Nonso Anozie, Matt Lucas, Maxine Peake, and more, we’re absolutely certain this will be the greatest performance in the 400 some-odd years since its inception. I mean, come on, Matt Lucas as Nick Bottom? Fie on everyone else who has ever assayed the role (pun absolutely intended).
