ODDSOCKS Productions return to much-loved Mary Arden’s Farm with two Shakespeare comedy favourites next week.
The national touring company perform ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ on Friday August 1, and Twelfth Night the following night, at the one time home of Shakespeare’s mother near Stratford. Both start at 7.30pm.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, featuring passionate lovers, magical fairies, farcical misunderstandings and happy endings set amidst the forest of Athens.
Twelfth Night, the Bard’s tale of mistaken identity, love and disguise, is given a modern musical makeover. Discarding their doublet, hose and fairy tights to don sharp suits, the cast of six pick up their electric guitars, plug in the amps and treat the audience to a little Brit pop.
As Shakespeare celebrates his 450th birthday, Oddsocks celebrate their 25th anniversary, having toured 70 productions down the years.
Advance ticket prices start from£10. Visit www.oddsocks.co.uk/theatre/box-office or call 01332 258328 to secure your spot at one of the most popular venues on the Oddsocks touring schedule.
