About the Show

The Mechanicals, that daring but goofy troupe of thespians from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, will take audiences on an uproarious journey through all the Bard’s best bits.

From a Romeo & Juliet ballet to Macbethian Punch & Judy puppet witches, a King Lear rap battle to Beatrice and Benedick lead rock bands, this is slapstick theatre at its best. It’s silly, it’s chaotic, it’s clever. It’s full of surprises, misunderstandings, blunders, and comic wit, cracking open Shakespeare and infusing it with wildly exciting scenarios. Glenn Elston’s brilliantly funny adaptation of Shakespeare’s cannon is wickedly entertaining and guaranteed to have the audience in stitches.
