A midsummer night's dream
The 24th June at 7.30 pm at the Château Bourglinster
Shakespeare’s most popular comedy deserves its reputation, for here the “lunatic, the lover and the poet” combine with the magical world to create a perfect mix of comedy and romance.
There will be no attempt to impose a geographical setting or radical design on the original, but rather the text will be carefully and freely interpreted allowing its deeper meanings and conflicts to emerge.
The play was written in 1596 as a celebration of a marriage and remains a timeless exploration of love in all its wonder and foolishness. The production will combine music, dance and song with powerful conflict that demonstrates not just the joy but also the pain and madness of love. The play is full of energy and that energy will be released through more than words.
The production is directed by Paul Stebbings and presented by TNT theatre Britain. Their cycle of Shakespearian classics include Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet and the Taming of the shrew – productions that have received popular and critical acclaim in over thirty countries worldwide performing in theatres and palaces from Tokyo to Berlin and Windsor Castle to Prague Castle.
