If you like your Shakespeare fast-moving, easily understood and visually stunning then Propeller’s sixty minute version of its award-winning production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is for you.

Pocket Dream is an inspiring introduction not only to Shakespeare, but also to the very best of English theatre.
After a gripping hour you are invited into the performance space to question the actors about the play, acting, Shakespeare, in fact anything that comes to mind.
A pocket-sized dream come true.

“One of the best and most exciting productions of this great play I have seen, ever...a thrilling sense of imagination and intelligence,”
“Propeller proves again the value of a true ensemble and a director who treats Shakespeare’s plays as if they’d just been written… I would have cried if I hadn’t been laughing so much.”
“In short, this was as sublime a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream as I have seen. An unrestrained delight.”
“Hall’s funny, moving, inventive and yet beautifully relaxed and unpretentious production is about the magic of transformation, the power of the imagination, the spell that only the theatre can cast. See it.” –-
