A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare

25-26 June 2010

For our return to Shakespeare's classic comedy we performed a lightly abridged version of the play in the open air in the beautiful garden of Clyde Burbage. With no stage, we performed the play alfresco, with distinct areas of the garden providing the backdrop. Guests picnicked before picking up their chairs and blankets to follow the action as it unfolded.
