This year’s Shakespeare in the Park has two amazing theatrical performances available, A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare and The Crucible, by Arthur Miller.

Arthur Miller's parable of mass hysteria draws a savage parallel between the Salem witch-hunt of 1692 – “one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history” - and the McCarthyism that gripped America in the 1950s. But its portrait of the ordinary evils latent in any society, of mindless, hysterical persecution through ignorance, fear of ‘otherness’ and our capacity to serve ourselves above all others make it one of the world’s most transcendent and important stories, in any age.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is the ultimate expression of Shakespeare's theatrical mastery. In the heat of the shortest night of the year, young lovers and work-a-day dreamers plunge into a world between sleep and waking, where "everything seems double". One of Shakespeare's truly essential works, 'Dream', like every fairy-story, warns us that family, love and friendship are fragile – when parents are selfish, their children break the rules; when love rears its head, friendships are forgotten; and that’s just the mortal world. The Fairy Kingdom's war over a mortal child has turned the entire "mazed world" upside down.

Both shows are equipped with an exceptional cast including Julian Garner, Georgia Adamson, Philip Dodd, Nathan Lovejoy, Jonathan Mill, Wendy Strehlow, Francesca Savige, Lizzie Schebesta, Matilda Ridgway, Adele Querol, Emma Chelsey Barnes, Michelle McKenzie, Christopher Tomkinson, Richard Hilliar, Felix Jozeps and Chris Stalley.

Join us this summer for a transformative journey through dreams and nightmares - a double bill of magic and the spirit world, and what happens when all hell breaks loose in the woods...
