Come Dine with Mr Shakespeare archiveReality TV lurches onto the stage, with four familiar Shakespearean characters competing to win a thousand gold crowns. Lovesick Duke Orsino (Twelfth Night), Cordelia (King Lear's former favourite daughter), Petruchio (tamer of small animals, such as shrews) and the nefarious Lady Macbeth each take their turn hosting a dinner party for the others. The kitchen capers of this volatile collection of unhinged individuals result in the inevitable mix of triumphs and disasters, for which they score each other out of 10. Who will ultimately be declared the winner and how will they celebrate their victory?
