War Horse team tackle Shakespeare

The National Theatre's production of Michael Morpurgo's novel, War Horse, has been one of the theatrical sensations of recent years.

After setting such high standards, the team that created War Horse are reuniting for the first time with a follow up performance in the form of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

From the rehearsals, the BBC arts correspondent Rebecca Jones, explains that the production opens at the Bristol Old Vic at the end of the month - and will then tour around the country next year.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 14 February 2013.
