Description

Award-winning Fringe favourites The Owle Schreame return with a wild, rough, raucous and ridiculous reimagining; a version of A Midsummer Night's Dream from the 1640s, originally adapted for illegal performance whilst theatre was outlawed, over 350 years ago. The Merry Conceited Humours of Bottom the Weaver has remained unperformed since. Until now. Join The Owle Schreame and make history once more, as Shakespeare spins in the ground beneath you. Folk costume made from straw, puppets made of gourds, silly songs and strange fairy lore. 'Hilarious, side-splitting nonsense and fun, yet fascinatingly informative. Don't miss!' ***** (Guardian).
