Stuff of Dreams presents their own unique version of William Shakespeare’s beloved romantic comedy ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Launching the production in Cromer, Stuff of Dreams are touring this production to five stunning venues across the region.
The old croquet lawn, outside North Lodge, is a special place for open air theatre. In keeping with the surprise elements of the play, weather permitting we will take some scenes around the Park for some ‘theatre en promenade’.
Please bring blankets, low-backed chairs and a picnic.
A talented cast of eight will tell the story of the extraordinary events that take place in the city of Athens and the enchanted wood just outside its walls on midsummer night.
Witness the feud between Oberon, King of the Fairies and his Queen the stunning Titania. Watch Theseus woo the unforgiving Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Laugh as Bottom and his friends rehearse their play ‘ready for Great Theseus nuptial day’ and become the victims of Puck’s mischievous pranks. Finally watch the lovers Lysander and Hermia, Helena and Demetrius as their relationships break down, friendships shatter and dreams are broken.
Will love conquer all? Who knows? The only thing that is certain is that ‘the course of true love never did run smooth’.
