A Midsummer Night's Dream @ Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens

In Athens preparations are being made for the marriage of the Duke, Theseus, and Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Meanwhile, in a nearby enchanted forest, the feud between the Fairy King and Queen reaches a new crisis. Into their realm are drawn four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors – and comic mayhem ensues.

This is a hugely funny and heart-warming, modern dress production of one of Shakespeare’s best loved and most enduring comedies.

This Happy Breed6 - 13 Jul

This Happy Breed

“The ordinary people, like you and me, know something more than all the ... politicians put together.” (Act III Sc3)

If it’s Coward it must be beaded dresses, cigarette holders, crystal clear cocktails and sharp, witty epigrams. But not this time.

The play covers twenty years in the life of the lower middle-class Gibbons family – from Frank Gibbons’ return from the trenches in 1919 to 1939 as another World War looms. Set in their suburban house in Clapham, it chronicles the family’s births, weddings, scandals and deaths, commenting on the key social and political events of the period - leaving little doubt of Coward’s self-professed patriotism and his belief in “This Happy Breed”.

Nell Gwynn

‘They’ve disgraced our trade. Ruined our art. They’ve put a woman on the stage.’
(Nell Gwynn Act 1 Scene 3)

Charles II’s restoration to the monarchy in 1660 was to breathe new life into London theatre. In her bawdy, joyful and irreverent account of the rise to fame of the most unlikely heroine, Nell Gwynn – from the humblest of backgrounds to London’s most successful actress and favourite mistress of the King – Swale captures beautifully the spirit of the age, giving us an affectionate, highly entertaining celebration of theatrical life itself.

‘... fifty, sixty thousand men would drown ... the airborne won’t know where to land, bombers won’t see their targets, civilians will be killed. The weather has got to be good ... ‘ (IKE)
