Drama Anvil:
A Midsummer Night's Dream



Saturday 16 July 7.30pm

A Midsummer Night's Dream


Anvil returns with everyone’s favourite play by William Shakespeare in his 400th anniversary year.

'A dream, dreamed on a midsummer night.'

In this country daylight lasts for 17 or 18 hours at midsummer.  It's a time when the birds and the bees, every plant and every creature lives life to the full in the open air.  It's the time to play, the time to dream and the time to love before the days shorten and grow cooler and life goes back indoors and is governed by a man made routine and artificial light - and life grows darker.

Join Anvil Productions as they bring Shakespeare's play to life in the open air at midsummer in Ucheldre’s amphitheatre.

Enjoy the frolics, farce and foolishness and escape from the routine, the regular, the rat race, but come warmly dressed for the outside even though the amphitheatre is sheltered!
