For the 18th year, The Castle Theatre Company returns to Glemham Hall, Suffolk  on Monday 3rd July 2017 to present: Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.

This classic tale of love, envy and magic is enjoyed worldwide and is great entertainment on a sunny July afternoon. When Hermia is told she must marry against her will, she elopes into the forest with her lover Lysander. They are pursued by their intended, Demetrius and Helena, and soon the four begin to bicker. However, when the feuding fairies of the forest discover the lovers they use their magic to toy with their emotions, and strange things begin to happen. Hilarity ensues as a passing group of actors are dragged into the chaos, and all involved are left wondering if what has happened, was real or just a vivid dream.

A wonderfully atmospheric and utterly English evening of comedy, human folly, feuding, romance, fairies and fools is almost guaranteed!

For over 30 years Castle Theatre Company has taken its annual summer Shakespeare tour around the south of England and the USA, performing classic comedies on the lawns of stately homes, gardens and abbeys across these countries. Renowned for its high-standard, Castle Theatre Company promises an afternoon of light-hearted family entertainment.

Bring a blanket and settle down with a picnic in our beautiful gardens before the performance begins. The gardens will be open from 6pm. Performance begins at 7pm. During the interval there will be a raffle with the performance expected to finish at around 9.30pm.

A vigorous production well worth seeing and from which the Suffolk Branch of The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (Reg Charity No 1112023) and St Elizabeth Hospice, Ipswich will benefit.
