CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
On a midsummer's night Hermia and her lover Lysander flee from Athens and Demetrius - the man Hermia's father favours as a son-in-law. Demetrius follows, pursued by Helena who loves him in spite of being spurned in favour of Hermia. On the same night Bottom and his friends leave Athens to find somewhere quiet to rehearse their play which is to be performed at the wedding feast of Duke Theseus. Drawn into the woods they enter a world of magic, mystery and wonder. Sean Holmes and Filter theatre company present a new version of A Midsummer Night s Dream condensed into one magical hour. Well-known for their unique take on classic texts, with previous works including Three Sisters, Twelfth Night and Caucasian Chalk Circle, these former collaborators will be joined by the visionary band The London Snorkelling Team to create Shakespeare as you ve never seen it before.Performers Jonathan Broadbent, Ed Gaughan, Simon Mayonda, Victoria Moseley, Ferdy Roberts, Rebecca Scroggs, Chris Branch (musician), Tom Haines (musician), John Lightbody.
