A Midsummer Night’s Dream @ South Street Park Amphitheatre
August 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
This is a ‘Pay What You Can’ performance! Bring along a picnic and plenty of friends, and pay what you decide at the end of the show – we suggest £10 per person, but all donations are accepted!
Join us in the atmospheric South Street Park Amphitheatre 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 begins at 5pm, but why not bring a picnic and come and enjoy the view before the show?
- 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!
