A Midsummer Night's Dream
The Dell, open air theatre
Sunday 15 July, 2pm
Free, no ticket required
Performed by The Willow Globe Community Company
Shakespeare Link's community company bring their own particular flavour to one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies as they explore the production with local and current resonances.
Their rural community promotes an every-day awareness of the magic around us, the spirit world rooted in bog and hill, hiding a glimmer of secret riches in the lustres of the earth. Shakespeare Link will reflect another world, an ageless timeless place peopled with 'spirits of another sort', to honour these interlacing worlds and to note the enduring hilarities of human behaviour that makes the play so accessible and beguiling.
