Notes

General
The cast credits are those taken from the cast of the stage production as cast details for the radio production were not available. It has been assumed that the cast is the same but because the radio version is much shorter some of the roles may have been cut.

Reviews
Jensen, Michael P. ‘Radio’ in Burt, Richard (ed). Shakespeares After Shakespeares: an Encyclopedia of the Bard in Mass Media and Popular Culture. 2 vols. Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 2006. Jensen notes that there was a long introduction in which all the plays produced in the season’s festival were noted. The ‘carnivalesque’ version was reduced to ‘a sampler of scenes’ for the hour broadcast.
