Review - 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' - Open Air Shakespeare
The Strange Fascination Theatre Co have created a wonderfully accessible production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Five actors, playing a mixture of parts, have brought to life the language & story, with humour & the odd moment of slapstick.
The only concern we had when watching the wonderful A Midsummer Night’s
Dream, was whether we had enough picnic and sun cream, as we basked in the
beautiful North Norfolk Coast sunshine on the Orchard at Dalegate Market,
Talking to other members of the audience, we all felt the performance was
great fun and a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours on a summer’s evening.
One word of warning, make sure you don’t have scotch eggs in your picnic,
because Bottom can sniff them out from many miles away.
The setting of the play is amongst the orchard trees beside the pop-up shops
of Dalegate Market. There’s plenty of room to lay a rug or place your chairs.
There isn’t huge amounts of shade, so best to bring sunhats and sun cream and
enjoy the beautiful weather. There is a café onsite and a small supermarket
with an off-licence snacks and ice-cream.
The cast are all Norfolk-based actors, passionate about bringing to life
Shakespeare and giving any size audience a lovely couple hours.
You don’t have to be pure Shakespeare lovers to enjoy this show, anyone who
enjoys open-air theatre will have a great time.
The shows continue until Saturday, August 13, with performances on
Wednesday 10th (7.30pm), Friday 12th (7.30pm) and Saturday
13th (2.30pm and 7.30pm).
