HandleBards - Midsummer Nights Dream

An evening with Shakespeare at Rock Hall, Alnwick


Join The HandleBards in the beautiful grounds of Rock Hall, Alnwick for an all-male, bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in support of the North Northumberland Hospice.

Four young lovers find themselves enveloped in the dream-like arms of a magical forest full of sprites, where a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war. A group of amateur actors share the same forest. They’re rehearsing for a play. Fairies and humans collide. Hilarity ensues.

In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

Come and see the play...bring a picnic, escape into a make-believe World of Shakespearian Tragedy and Comedy. We present four actors and their bikes riding from London to Edinburgh with props and tents on board!
