The HandleBards are the world’s first cycling theatre company. Before touring their “beautifully bonkers” production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream around the world, they pedalled it 1500 miles around the UK by bicycle, with all the necessary set, props and costume in tow. Now, the show is back by popular demand – and, in usual HandleBards style, we can expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter. Join the HandleBards’ all-male troupe in the wonderful warehouse of Theatre Delicatessen for A Midsummer Night’s Dream as you’ve never seen it before!
And what’s the play about? Well – Four young lovers find themselves enveloped in the dream-like arms of a magical forest full of sprites, where a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war over the possession of an Indian boy. A group of amateur actors share the same forest. They’re rehearsing for a play. Fairies and humans collide. Hilarity ensues.
Previous praise for A Midsummer Night’s Dream:
“Gloriously eccentric and very funny Shakespearean tomfoolery” – ★★★★ The Stage
