Theatre: A Midsummer Night's Dream - Stanton
In the church without a roof on Midsummer's weekend, come and enjoy Shakespeare's classic play
“I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.”
It's a 'first' for St. John the Baptist Church at Stanton, and a 'first' for "This is My Theatre" company, who will host their first outdoor performance of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' in the roofless church on a grass carpet.
The woods outside Athens are truly bustling on this night! Runaway lovers, mischievous fairies, their feuding king and queen and the rehearsals of a band of amateur actors make this one of Shakespeare’s most loved plays.
Using the play’s original language in combination with traditional folk music played live, choral song and modern characterisation, this beautiful adaptation will captivate audiences of all ages.
