Runaways. Fairies. Goblins… Water Pistols!?! Look out, it’s RUBBISH Shakespeare!!!
Athens. The past. Four idiots enter wearing bed sheets for togas. With rubbish props, silly wigs and a ladder, they attempt to perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream in an hour. And fail. Miserably. With hilarious results!
Described as ‘like Horrible Histories but funnier’ (Primary Times), this Dream is an anarchic, slapstick, all-ages comedy that promises belly laughs for the whole family. Expect bubble guns, mop heads, chair legs, cardboard cutout cast members, lightsabers and a frankly pitiful attempt at ‘magic!’
Perfect as an introduction to Shakespeare or for any Shakespeare enthusiast. They’ll make a mess of this Dream, even if it bruises them.
