A Midsummer Night's Dream

Sun 16th – Mon 31st Aug 2015

NO UPCOMING PERFORMANCES

“Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy sees the madcap antics scrapped in favour of dark, sexual undertones as Dream tips into nightmare. ”

Troupe, funded by CUADC (Cambridge University Amateur Dramatics Club)

SUMMARY

With the moon rising over Athens, four lovers escape a tyrannical judgement and seek solace in the woods, only to be caught in a macabre fairy plot. Desire and domination are bound together as Oberon bends a defiant Titania to his will. Meanwhile, mortal lives become playthings as a mischievous Puck play cupid. Mischief leads to malevolence and devotion dissolves into obsession in this infamous tale. Shakespeare's comedy is given a darker edge: reality is twisted beyond recognition and dream tips into nightmare.

Admission: £10.50(£8.50)
