|Description||A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare Friday 28 August 8pm Friday 28 August 2pm How did a company tour in Shakespeare's day? We know that when the theatres closed, a small group of actors, juggling a variety of roles in three or four plays from their extensive repertoire, would leave London and head off on tour. Following in the tradition of their resident playwright, Shakespeare's Globe present a trio of plays exploring the city and the places beyond the city walls. The plays will be performed as a touring production would have been staged in the 17th century, with a stripped back set and a small, versatile troupe of actors. Taking on multiple roles across all three plays - A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It and The Tempest - the talented cast will unravel these tales of lovers, exiles, dreamers and wanderers. A Midsummer Night's Dream Four brawling lovers, caught in a dispute of magical proportions; a crew of keen mechanicals, determined to give it their all; and one roguish sprite, hell-bent on causing as much havoc as possible. What could possibly go wrong? Exploding with dramatic poetry, mischief and merriment, A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare's amazingly inventive play, whose serious and dark undercurrent cuts starkly through the hilarity making its dreamlike surface deeply rich and all the more memorable. Accessible to all, and great for children. 2019 Tour Reviews 'Vigorous, playful and fun with a few twists and quirks that charm' The Reviews Hub (On Twelfth Night)|
