Join Oddsocks Productions as they return to celebrate their 30th Anniversary year with yet another high-energy, feel-good, family theatre show. This summer the company invite you to join them for a festival of music, magic and mayhem as they bring that Shakespearean favourite, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, to life…as you have never seen it before.
Every year Oddsocks delight audiences with their inspired approach to Shakespeare’s plays and their trademark interactive style. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with its easy-to-follow storyline and hilarious characters is perfect for the Oddsocks treatment and will be a memorable production.
Four young lovers run away to a summer festival in the woods to escape the stress of parental expectations at home. Before long they unwittingly find themselves the subjects of tricks, played on them with hilarious results. Add to that a troupe of amateur actors hired to play at the festival and you have the perfect recipe for an evening of fun family entertainment.
“without doubt the performance was among the best productions that I have seen…” – Jersey Evening Post
“Shakespeare would definitely have approved of this version of the perennial seasonal play, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Oddsocks certainly knows how to tickle a funny bone or two. Laugh? I laughed until I cried at this absolutely fantastic rendition of Will’s classic. Live music, exhilarating circus skills and wonderfully executed pregnant pauses and comic interludes proliferate the play. This is one not to miss and recommended for a really good night out – get your tickets now!” – Derby Telegraph
