Shakespeare’s classic comedy, in a fresh, lively version that’s accessible and fun for primary aged children.

Set in a forest outside Athens, it’s a twisting tale of four confused and argumentative lovers, a group of temperamental fairies, and a gang of rowdy workmen who are trying to rehearse their own play. Oberon, king of the Fairies, sends his hare-brained servant, Puck, to enchant the Queen, Titania. While he’s about it, he may as well enchant the Athenian lovers, too. What could possibly go wrong?

Packed with colourful characters, from feisty Hermia to foolish Bottom, this show makes a fantastic introduction to Shakespeare. The script, carefully edited and adapted to include 30 speaking parts, is partly in modern English, but we have kept plenty of Shakespeare’s glorious language for your young cast to experience.
