A Midsummer Night’s Dream Storytelling

This event has now passed.
Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Join us on a playful journey into the woods for Shakespeare’s most sparkling comedy.

Four young lovers and a troupe of would-be actors find themselves caught in the middle of a huge row between the Queen and King of the Fairies. Then there’s Puck who is out to make some mischief of their own… What could possibly go wrong?

Trying to keep track of the goings on in this story brimming over with humour and magical high jinks will be Alex Kanefsky. Alex is an oral storyteller, actor and writer who has told stories in schools, libraries, tents, caravans, forests, pubs, bookshops and museums.

…meet me in the palace wood, a mile without the town, by moonlight.

— A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act I, scene 2
