Outdoor Shakespeare at its Best!
“The course of true love never did run smooth..."

A wedding celebration disrupted by a dangerous elopement, warring fairies, a band of ambitious performers and the most famous donkey in theatre history! Shakespeare’s iconic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream bursts into life this summer in a hidden corner of Bristol….

Disappear into a world of mischief, mistaken identity and mayhem as ‘Site Specific Theatre Masters’ (Bristol 24/7) Insane Root bring their own special brand of magic to the Eastville Park Old Swimming Pool Garden once more after their acclaimed production of Romeo & Juliet in 2018.

This vibrant new open-air adaptation will transport audiences to Athens for a wedding celebration like no other. Adapted by the company and featuring an ensemble of nine performers playing multiple roles, direction from Hannah Drake, integrated acapella harmonies from Ellie Showering, immersive lighting design by Edmund McKay, and dynamic site-responsive design from Katy Hoste.
