A Midsummer Night’s Dream *****

This is the first of an occasional series of live theatre reviews.

Guildford is lucky to be the home of the Guildford Shakespeare Company (@GuildfordBard).  They are famous for its summer outdoor productions and using unusual venues at other times of the heat.

June saw their first outdoor offering, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  The location is in the ancient quarry, Racks Close, just 200 meters from the High Street.  This offers multiple natural stages for the action.

The cast gave us a fabulously reimagined story, set in and around the Dennis Fire Engine factory in the mid sixties, while retaining the Bards original text.

Sadly this show is now closed but, The Two Gentlemen of Verona runs 14-29 July, University of Law Gardens, Guildford.  Get these hot tickets before they are all gone.

I give the Guildford Shakespeare Company my full 5 stars out of five.
