      A Midsummer Night's Dream

      Runaways. Fairies. Goblins. Water pistols!?!  The Rubbish Shakespeare Company presents an anarchic, outdoor summer performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Following the success of 2018’s sell-out, five-star national tour of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, the Rubbish Shakespeare Company bring their next hit to the fitting Tudor grounds of Ordsall Hall! This madcap troupe of four have the Bard’s impish tale of forbidden love and pixies in their sights. Their plan, to stage the greatest edition of the Dream ever seen, complete “with magic in it and everything”. Will they succeed? Of course not – they’re rubbish! Sit back, recline on your picnet blanket, and watch on, as our four hapless idiots fail spectacularly for an hour for your amusement. Full of high-octane slapstick action and mischievous storytelling, this vibrant reimagining brings belly laughs for all ages. Expect a trail of wigs, bubble guns, life-size cardboard cut-outs, and a frankly pitiful attempt at roller skating. Your kids will love it, and you will too!
