A Midsummer Night’s Dream…a note from our Director

IMG_3568

It’s been a year of tousling with Shakespeare coming to the conclusion the more active and physical it is the more dreamy it becomes…

In truth, this play can be done in so many different ways, but as a director, it’s important to do the production that serves the Company you have …and as always we have an incredibly talented and ever developing group.

It’s been an epic rollercoaster with a vibrant and visceral couple of months Rehearsal. So, that’s what the production will be a version of this play through the personality and strengths of our Cast.

Why separate the energy of a company from the writer. He’s one of the best writers in the world that’s why his plays can be interpreted in so many different ways.

The more we dig deeper into our version of this play the more I love and fall deeper in love with Shakespeare. Inspiring, beautiful and magical.

His language transports us all every rehearsal.

So this is a reimagining of this story, our version, a bold and physical and visceral take on the bard making it worthy of the word ” Dream”!

On the Technical team this year we are lucky enough to have Matt Unwin and Rob Bermingham join us in their inspired and original Design and as always the trusty Luke Smith on Soundboard. Paul Knowles will be in charge of lighting. I’m so excited by the entire Company for this Production.
