Shake­speare dream out un­der the stars

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE WHAT’S ON -

IT may be late into spring, but the Mid­sum­mer fairies will be work­ing their magic and mis­chief at Bun­gawarra Wines later this month.

Stan­thorpe Lit­tle The­atre pre­sents its 14th sea­son of Shake­speare un­der the stars with one of his most beloved plays A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream.

Writ­ten in the late 1500s, A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream,

is widely per­formed through­out the world and holds themes of love and re­la­tion­ships that are still rel­e­vant to­day.

“Most of the play is set in a for­est full of wood­land spir­its,” play di­rec­tor Christo­pher Des­grand said.

“This is one of Shake­speare’s bawdi­est plays, full of clever in­nu­endo.

“We al­ways strive to present the Bard’s lan­guage in a way that our au­di­ence un­der­stands the plot with its sub­tleties and hu­mour.

“Time and time again we get feed­back from those who didn’t think they liked Shake­speare un­til they saw a live pro­duc­tion.

“If you’ve never been to Shake­speare Un­der the Stars, please join us in the for­est and we’ll do our best to de­light you.”
