Join us in the beautiful Merchant Adventurers’ Hall for our all-male, bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as part of the York International Shakespeare Festival!
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.
