A Midsummer Night's Dream - Outdoor Shakespeare Performance

  • Alnwick Castle, Alnwick, Northumberland NE66 1NQ England (map)

Hermis loves Lysander, but her father wants her to marry Demetrius. Her best friend, Helena, is in love with Demetrius, but he wants nothing to do with her. When the four lovers decide to elope into the woods, little do they know things are about to get a lot more complex. The mischievous Sprite, Puck, is ready to show that the course of true love never did run smooth. Add to the mix a motley crew of Mechanicals who have met together to rehearse a play, also in the forest.


Performed by The Three Inch Fools, a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, travelling with set, props and costumes across the UK, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays.
