£10.00 - £55.00
On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the mischievous arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule.
With a feuding Fairy King and Queen, Quince and his friends presenting their play within a play, and chief mischief-maker Puck on hand, games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.
A touring production of the Shakespeare comedy, at each venue featuring local amateur performers playing Bottom and the rude mechanicals, and local schoolchildren playing Titania's fairy train.
This special production will mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in 2016.
East London schoolchildren appear as faries, while local amateurs the Tower Theatre Company feature as the rude mechanicals.
