Robert Swindells's A Midsummer Night's Dream is set in a very modern-day Yorkshire.
Theseus, the neighbourhood tycoon is getting married. Bottom and his mates are roped into putting on a play for the wedding because, well, there's nothing much to do when you're on the dole. But, before the wedding, there are young lovers with problems to resolve ... and a drop of magic and mischief in the mix!
The Shakespeare Today series captures the magic of Shakespeare's text and sets it in an accessible and contemporary style.
