GORDANO School students will be presenting their interpretation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in January.
The Shakespeare comedy, with a cast of more than 100 pupils, follows the fortunes of two sets of lovers, who are blinded by love and the effects of a magic potion. As the lovers try to escape, mischief and confusion ensues.
In the contrasting worlds of the fairies and the mortals, the city and the Fairy Festival collide with comedy and chaos. Amidst all the mayhem, a troupe of hapless actors get caught up in a lover’s tiff between the king and queen of the fairies.
Drawing its inspiration from Cabot Circus and Glastonbury Festival, the production promises to take its audience on a magical journey, blurring the lines between what is real and what is imagined.
Performances take place on January 28, 29 and 30 at the St Marys Road school. The curtain goes up at 7pm.
