HandleBards - Midsummer Night's Dream

Saturday 15th August 2015, 5pm onwards for picnics. Curtain at 7pm.

The HandleBards are a madcap, 4-strong, all male troupe of Shakespearean players. They are returning to New Lanark following the success of their rumbustious 2014 performance of ‘A Comedy of Errors’. Carrying all their set, props and costumes on just their 4 bikes, they will be rocking up with their innovative style and proving that love makes fools of us all in Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Don’t miss out on this perfect end to our Summer of Fun!

Please feel free to bring your own picnic to enjoy before the event, along with a blanket or folding seats for comfort. A licensed bar will be available. 

If the weather is poor the event will be relocated indoors to the Musicians' Room within the Institute for the Formation of Character building. 

Tickets £10/£5 under 16’s. To purchase call 01555 661345, email trust@newlanark.org or book online.

About the show:

Touring the UK, carrying all their set, props and costumes by bicycle, the HandleBards present their all-male production of Shakespeare’s woodland extravaganza – all 21 characters of it. Bring a picnic and join us in the great outdoors for a fast-paced farce. Described by Sir Ian McKellen as “outrageous” and “uproariously funny”, this is Shakespeare performed with eight very sore legs. www.handlebards.com

**** ‘It’s back to basics storytelling in the BEST way’ – WhatsOnStage (The Comedy Of Errors, 2014)
