The most talked about new Shakespeare company in the UK, Merely Theatre has honed a style that strips the Bard back to basics - no gauche sets, frilly collars or fussy props: just the actors, the audience and the text. Now the company are stripping back something more profound to create audience-focused, multi-role, gender-blind Shakespeare.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream playfully depicts the comically intertwining tales of feuding forest gods, midnight elopements and staging a theatre show. This energetic, 90 minute production of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy stays true to Shakespeare’s text while presenting it in an exuberant and stripped back style.
