(the best half of)
A Midsummer Night's Dream
by
William Shakespeare
Directed by Kirree Seddon
(27th March & 19th June 2004)
 
 

HERE'S A TIP.. Read the text portions of this page while your computer loads the photos.
 

The parts of the play performed were where six men rehearse and perform a play before the Duke and Duchess on their wedding day. Peter Quince is the troop leader and playwright, with the over-enthusiastic, pain-in-the-neck Bottom, along with Starvling, Snug, Snout, and Flute all given parts to act out.

Also, Titania, having just had magic flower juice dropped in her eyes by Oberon; she falls in love with Bottom who now has an asses head on his shoulders the work of the mischievous Puck.

The play culminates in the staging of the dramatic play where Pyramus (Bottom) and Thisbe (Flute) die in similar circumstances to Romeo and Juliet.

Well, not in real life,... but he does a very good job!!

Oh, darn it!... What with all the buzz and excitement we forgot to take lots of photos on the big night, so sorry (but you should've been there(!) ha ha). The group shot below is the only one and again no Fuggo, and Cath. We'll make sure we take plenty at the next one. 
 
Around 70 people came to see the performance and all enjoyed it..
 
Here are some quotes...
 
"Brilliant."
"It was pretty good."
"I'm from Edinburgh and it takes a lot to impress me, you were superb." And a different person said. . . .
 "You should take it to the Fringe."
"It was a quality performance."
"We'll definitely be back to see another of your shows."
"I would like to join you." !!!
"It was really funny."
"I cried. I've seen Shakespeare often." (At which bits? We do not know! We can only guess it was at the death scene. Or was it where the pathetic lion growled! ha ha)
"I was in stitches at the dying scene."
"I can't believe they're amateurs."
