A CURVE YOUNG COMPANY AND COMMUNITY PRODUCTION

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Synopsis

Share:

This summer, merrily wander the night with our Curve Young Company and Community actors in a vibrant new production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Directed by Curve Associate Artist Nick Winston (Director Bugsy Malone, Choreographer Grease and Legally Blonde) and featuring a cast of 70 people aged 12 to 63, this epic reimagining brings aspiring actors together under the Made at Curve banner to present one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies.

‘The course of true love never did run smooth…’

Hermia loves Lysander, Lysander loves Hermia, Helena loves Demetrius and Demetrius loves Hermia. Under the light of the moon, we follow the story of our lover’s quartet as they become ensnared in magical mishaps in a fantastical forest at the hands of the mischievous fairy sprite Puck.

The misuse of magic causes chaos amongst both the young lovers and fairies alike, wreaking romantic havoc and unfathomable happenings which can only be explained away as nothing more than a surreal dream…

This magical Made at Curve production is the perfect summer Shakespeare treat for all the family.

Curve is a registered charity (number 230708) and this funding supports our work with people of all ages, enabling them to access, participate in and learn from the arts. Our Community production is a highlight of this work, enabling people from across Leicester and Leicestershire to enjoy a full professional stage experience.
