A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM: THE HOUR

Summer 2020

Art imitates life in this 'glitteringly entertaining' (Susan Elkin, Sardines Magazine) sixty minute version of Shakespeare’s much loved comedy as six actors and a musician come together to perform for the first time since the lifting of restrictions on open air theatre.

As a ‘Covid responsive’ company we have been able to create our model around the restrictions of the pandemic rather than having to adapt to them which in many ways has been a blessing rather than a curse and we operate on a post show ‘pay what you choose’ basis to ensure that the performance is open to all.
