Be transported to a magical forest world for this unique interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic comedy ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
There you will meet the fairy king and queen Oberon and Titania and their mischievous servant Puck, who creates unintentional havoc for two love-struck couples with the aid of a magic potion.
Adding to the comedic chaos are the motley crew of The Mechanicals (including in this adaptation a librarian, a DJ and a rugby coach!) performing the famous ‘play within a play’ and poor Bottom, whose head gets magically transformed into that of an ass, and you have all the necessary ingredients for an hilarious story of order and disorder, reality and appearance and love and marriage.
Presented by the award-winning arts and disability charity Open Arts, this very special event will showcase the drama, dance, choral, visual art, creative writing and traditional Javanese Gamelan percussion skills of up to 65 group members who have a range of disabilities: physical, sensory, learning disabilities and mental health illness.
This ambitious production is the result of almost two years’ work by Open Arts participants and tutors and it promises to be an unforgettable celebration of creativity and inclusivity.
On Saturday 27 April the show will be audio described.
There will be a touch tour before the show on the Saturday 27 at 6:45pm .If you would like to avail of the touch tour please let Box Office know via phone on 02890235053 or email email@example.com
