The Rubbish Shakespeare Company is bringing their fun and lighthearted version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Darwen Market Square on Saturday 7th August 2021.
This is a free event perfect for all the family. Remember to bring a picnic blanket or some camping chairs, and to wear suncream if it’s a sunny day (fingers crossed!).
Here’s what to expect…
Fairies, goblins, donkeys… Super soakers!?!? Uh oh, it’s RUBBISH Shakespeare!
The past (before toasters).
Four idiots dressed in bedsheets attempt to stage William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, using only a box of pound-shop props, a camel onesie, and a ladder they found by the bins. Will they succeed? Of course not, no. But oh my, will you belly-laugh at the results…
Described as ‘like Horrible Histories but funnier’ (Primary Times); take a dash of Python, a teaspoon of Pixar, sprinkle in some lightsabers and a big bucket of slapstick, and what you’re left with is a Shakespeare experience that’s unlike any other – it’s far from rubbish!
Having made celebrated, accessible Shakespeare for a decade, the Rubbish Shakespeare Company presents ‘The Dream’. A perfect introduction to Shakespeare – and an Edinburgh Fringe favourite – this smash-hit production will delight all ages, and seriously tickle your funny bone. Your kids will love it… and so will you!
