"Pantaloon-meets-Python slapstick, song, dance and parodies LOADS OF FUN."

About the show

The Mechanicals, that daring but goofy troupe of thespians from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, will take audiences on an uproarious journey through all the Bard’s best bits.


From a Romeo & Juliet ballet to Macbethian Punch & Judy puppet witches, a King Lear battle rap to Beatrice and Benedick rock bands, this is slapstick theatre at its best. It’s silly, it’s chaotic, it’s clever. It’s full of surprises, misunderstandings, blunders, and comic wit – it cracks open Shakespeare and infuses it with wildly exciting scenarios. It’s wickedly entertaining. Glenn Elston’s brilliantly funny adaptation of Shakespeare’s cannon is designed to have the audience in stitches.

"don’t miss this marvellous summer attraction!"
