Dates & Prices

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.

Age Guidance: 4-104


"There are bed sheet togas, water pistols, lightsabers, scary wigs and mop head lion’s manes. It’s pure rubbish… and you’ll love every minute"

Wee Review
"I’m a firm believer that when you take the kids to see a show, you can tell if it’s good or not purely by watching their expressions. These performers had their young audience eating out of the palms of their hands"
