Town Gardens Bowl

July 27th @ 7:00 pm

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Join the HandleBards at the Town Gardens Bowl for a hilarious, high-octane production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Four young lovers find themselves lost in a magical forest, where the Fairy King and Queen are fighting for the possession of a changeling boy. A group of amateur actors head to the same forest to rehearse for a play. Humans and fairies collide and hilarity ensues.

“Gloriously eccentric and very, very funny” ★★★★ The Stage

This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!
