"I rated this dvd so low because the price is absolutely ridiculous. $200 for a one hour dvd? Charge $25 and people will actually buy this dvd. I saw it for free from a library and wanted to but it, but the cost is prohibative.

John Barton is always fun to watch. If we could only get his "Playing Shakespeare" dvd series released in an affordable edition."
