A Midsummer Night’s Dream @ Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
August 22, 2017 @ 6:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:30pm, repeating until August 26, 2017
This performance is a part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and tickets can be bought by calling 0131 226 0000 or by visiting the Edinburgh Fringe website.
Join us in the beautiful Botanics for our all-male, bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream!
Four young lovers find themselves enveloped in the dream-like arms of a magical forest full of sprites, where a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war over the possession of an Indian boy. A group of amateur actors share the same forest. They’re rehearsing for a play. Fairies and humans collide. Hilarity ensues.
In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
Notes on Performance
- The performance will begin at 6:45pm, but we suggest arriving around 15 minutes earlier to ensure you have plenty of time to get to the performance venue. Entry to the Botanics is via the West Gate only.
- Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
- In case of rain, please don’t bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching anyway, so please wear these instead!
- Refreshments will be available from the café.
