is a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's classic, A Midsummer Night's Dream
, premiering at the Northcott Theatre. The Lord of the Manor celebrates his coming of age as the villagers rehearse a midsummer mummers-play. Unseen eyes gaze on from tree and bracken - the woodlanders, vagabond children, spirits of the forest. Lost lovers roam there too, a quartet of bewildered wanderers, mismatched and confused. How can the mysterious boy with the beguiling gaze serve these four?Performers Alastair Hill (Alexander), Joshua Tonks (David), Richard Brindley (Julian), Daisy Tonge (Sylvia), Chris Hancock (Angel), Kayleigh McKnight (Henrietta), Michael Burgen (Cheek), Rachel Flynn (Jennifer), Holly Julier (Charlotte), Simone Murphy (Jack), Matthew Jay Ryan (Jess), David Breeds (Walter Grubb), Alex Green (Bob Fry), Jordan Ginger (Seth/Mathews), Joel Burman (Woodlander), Faye Charlotte Ainley (Woodlander), Rosie O'Hare (Woodlander), Rosie O'Hare (Woodlander), Hannah Jay Allan (Woodlander), Christina Harris (Woodlander), Hollie Evans (Woodlander).
