Sunday 15 July, 4pm
Pocket Dream performed by Riverside Drama Company
Written by Elly Brewer and Sandi Toksvig
Tickets cost £5
The Henry Irving Strolling Players are touring their latest production of A Midsummer's Night Dream. However, on this particular performance the director and all the cast, bar two, are nowhere to be found. What follows is the Stage Manager's desperate attempts to cobble together a performance using just 6 people (including the stage hand, the Front of House Manager and a PE teacher) to play 18 parts. Each 'performer' must play multiple roles with whatever costumes they can find, and off we go for confusion, bravado, romance and fun.
