Fairies, goblins, donkeys… Super soakers!?!? Uh oh, it’s RUBBISH Shakespeare!
The past (before toasters).
Four idiots dressed in bedsheets attempt to stage William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, using only a box of pound-shop props, a camel onesie, and a ladder they found by the bins. Will they succeed? Of course not, no. But oh my, will you belly-laugh at the results…
Described as ‘like Horrible Histories but funnier’ (Primary Times); take a dash of Python, a teaspoon of Pixar, sprinkle in some lightsabers and a big bucket of slapstick, and what you’re left with is a Shakespeare experience that’s unlike any other – it’s far from rubbish!
Having made celebrated, accessible Shakespeare for a decade, the Rubbish Shakespeare Company presents ‘The Dream’. A perfect introduction to Shakespeare – and an Edinburgh Fringe favourite – this smash-hit production will delight all ages, and seriously tickle your funny bone. Your kids will love it… and so will you!
