Event description

Description

“If music be the food of love, play on.”

Following last year’s “heart warming” A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Nelson Summer Shakespeare returns with a professional production of the hilarious and heart-breaking tale of unrequited love. Viola falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on Olivia (who is idolised by Malvolio), who falls in love with Viola.

Shipwrecked twins, disguises, plots and counter plots make Twelfth Night one of Shakespeare’s most adored plays.

Suitable for the whole family. Bring a picnic, bring a blanket and set sail for Illyria. You decide how much to pay.

IF WET, THE PERFORMANCE WILL BE HELD AT THE GRANARY IN FOUNDERS PARK. PLEASE CHECK FACEBOOK PAGE AFTER 2PM EACH DAY FOR UPDATES.

Reviews from 2017 Summer Shakespeare - A Midsummer Night's Dream:

“[The director] has the cast using powerful physicality, imaginative tableaux and strongly defined characterisation to guide the audience through the complexities of Shakespearean theatre. The acting is superb.”
“Introduced grandchildren to Shakespeare .... they loved it & want to go again.”
“What a great night, still laughing days later. Brilliant.”
“We are already excited about next year's production.”
