The Crouch End Players present
Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Earl Haig Hall, 9th – 12th May 2018
The Crouch End Players will celebrate the end of this long cold winter by bringing to life Shakespeare’s most popular comedy. In this joyful contemporary production, mayhem ensues as lovelorn hipsters and modern mechanicals find themselves the pawns in a game between the feuding Fairy King and Queen. Silly, slapstick and even a bit raunchy, this pacey production finds laughter in every line of a well-loved classic.
On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers run away from Athens and find themselves in an enchanted forest where sprites and fairies rule. A group of amateur players, led by Bottom and Quince, rehearsing their play for the Duke’s wedding celebrations, are also drawn into the fairies’ games. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.
The show features original music by David Tims with song and dance an essential part of the action. In the welcoming atmosphere of the Earl Haig Hall Shakespeare’s Athenian forest will be transformed into an urban jungle peopled by a rich mixture of gods and mortals.
Tickets priced £10 will be available online from 6th April via https://crouchendplayers.co.uk
