This season we start with Lucy Richardson’s direction of the much loved A Midsummer Night’s Dream with its mix of royal wedding preparations, confused lovers and fairies filling the air
On the night before the royal wedding the toffs are out on the tiles. Lysander is on the pull, Demetrius is talking dirty and the girls don’t know which way is up.
Above the local pub the am dram crowd, led by Peter Quince, are trying to prepare a play for the royal celebrations but unfortunately they couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery.
But the fairies are out too – painting the town red. Oberon is as drunk as a lord and Titania is barking at the moon – and Puck has some drugs to spike the drinks and some dodgy costumes to make people look ridiculous.
They’re all going to be suffering from the grapes of wrath in the morning!
The LSBU Student Theatre Company take Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and dress it to kill, to give you a great night out!
