A fairy queen and king argue ruthlessly and the world turns upside down - and Puck - the fairy devil with a cheeky glimmer in his eye - doesn’t help. The mortal Kings and Queens play the parent card and deny their daughters the boyfriends of their choice. And Puck really doesn’t help. Bottom the Weaver is to perform in a play at the palace and play all the parts himself. He’s not a very good actor so that should be a laugh. Puck really, really doesn’t help. In fact, thanks to Puck, these young lovers give each other serious grief and the glamorous fairy queen falls in love with a donkey! Did you ever?! Really, grown-ups in love make such fools of themselves! With songs, puppets and knockabout humour Shakespeare’s story is faithfully adapted for a young audience losing none if its poetry, magic and beauty and, amazingly, is performed by just four actors. Age 7+
