Merely Theatre with A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Merely Theatre with A Midsummer Night’s Dream

People call it ‘Sweaty Shakespeare’.

A genderblind company of five actors ‘explode with energy’ all around you. Audiences share ‘delighted laughter’ alongside ‘pin-drop silences’. We give you text that is ‘delightfully easy to understand’, ‘vibrant and alive’. Characters that are ‘poignant’, ‘moving’, and ‘shockingly funny’. Shows that are ‘bare and in your face’, full of ‘resourcefulness and invention’.

Producing Shakespeare that is as ‘relevant’ and ‘understandable as it was when it was first written’, making the theatre ‘resonate with life’.

*all quotes from reviews and audience members.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM: Young lovers and would-be thespians fall into a world of feuding forest gods. They are soon caught up in the mischievous magic of a renegade fairy, who gives them all eyes for someone (or something) else. Merely Theatre present this supercharged adventure-comedy in a riotous and relentless production.

> 28th and 29th September (matinee from 2pm) and 30th September (evening 730pm)
