A Midsummer Night's Dream

Midsummer night. An enchanted forest. Puck and his musical fairy band tell a tale of lovers, mechanicals, and magical mayhem. The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons present their innovative and hilarious open-air version of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy – told, as ever, in their own distinctive and anarchic style.






The performance will take place in the lower garden at the Cottage and will continue in all weather bar a full-blown tempest! Please remember to bring a picnic and something to sit on.
