Propeller Theatre Company present Pocket Dream

A Midsummer Night’s Dream for Young Audiences

Directed by Edward Hall

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.

Under Edward Hall’s direction, this all-male Shakespeare company combines a rigorous approach to the text with a physical aesthetic creating a production full of clarity, poetry, humour and imagination, with a little bit of magic thrown in. 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. 

An education pack is available on request

Suitable for all ages

One of the best and most exciting productions of this great play I have seen, ever...a thrilling sense of imagination and intelligence,The Sunday Times, John Peter

“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.” The Guardian 

 “In short, this was as sublime a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream as I have seen. An unrestrained delight. Theatreworld

“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.”The Mail on Sunday
