Midsummer Mechanicals: Splendidly Shakespearean summertime shenanigans at the Globe
Midsummer Mechanicals is a new play written by Splendid’s Kerry Frampton & Ben Hales (with a little help from Shakespeare). It’s performing in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse from 28 July to 21 August 2022 – a delightful theatrical treat for audiences of all ages.
It’s a year after the events of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. The wonderful troupe of actors from Shakespeare’s play have gathered for the debut performance of their brand new piece, written by their own Nick Bottom (played by Kerry Frampton), an astounding original work which tells the story of his own adventures in the deep forest, one midsummer night not so long ago…
But as every theatrical artisan knows, anything can happen on opening night!
It’s a relaxed, family-friendly show full of songs, joy and expert foolishness; perfect for the midsummer holidays.
