A Midsummer Night's Dream re-imagined for everyone aged six and over (2008)
8 July – 2 August
Under a new Artistic Director, Timothy Sheader, the Open Air Theatre began a commitment to families to provide work for a younger audiences. The Re-imagined series of adaptations, began in 2007 with A Midsummer Night’s Dream re-imagined for everyone aged six and over. This tale of magic and mischief was a perfect choice as it was already synonymous with the Park. Dominic Leclerc's take on the classic play used Shakespeare’s original language and text, and was rich in physical humour. Deemed 'a charming and engaging introduction to Shakespeare and theatre-going' (Time Out), it marked the beginning of a new focus at the Park.
