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 75 people aged 12 to 63, this epic reimagining brings both professional and aspiring actors together under the Made at Curve banner to present one of Shakespeare’s best-loved works.
‘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 will be a fun mix of contemporary pop songs and dance, interwoven with Shakespeare’s beautiful language to create opposites and contrast, the very idea on which A Midsummer Night’s Dream was crafted.
