Award-winning Fringe favourites the Owle Schreame return with a wild, rough, raucous and drunken reimagining; a version of A Midsummer Night's Dream from the 1640s, originally adapted for illegal performance in pubs and back alleys whilst theatre was outlawed, over 350 years ago. The Merry Conceited Humours of Bottom the Weaver has remained unperformed ever since. Until now. Come join the Owle Schreame and make history, as Shakespeare spins in the ground beneath you. 'A wonderful, ridiculous, fascinating yet laugh-at-loud experience. Rough theatre at its finest. Catch the Owle Schreame now!' ***** (Guardian).
