Shakespeare at the George | A Midsummer Night's Dream

Shakespeare at the George | A Midsummer Night's Dream

Tue, 25 Jun 2019 19:00

From 25th June - 6th July 2019 at The George Hotel.

Shakespeare at The George has been performing at The George Hotel in Huntingdon since 1959. The 60th anniversary summer production will be A Midsummer Night's Dream directed by Dean Laccohee.

The production will be performed in the courtyard of The George Hotel. There will be the usual stagetext captioned performance on Tuesday 2nd July. Written in 1596/96, for centuries A Midsummer Night's Dream has been one of Shakespeare's most popular works. Four lovers, having an argument in the Athenian woods at midnight, are confused by fairies who are trying to help. Throw in some magic, a custody battle over a little bot and an amateur actor who unsuspectingly becomes the fairy queen's love interest... oh and a magic set of ass's ears... and there you have it - A Midsummer Night's Dream.
