With great delight we can report that this year we have been successful in our application to take part in the RSC’s summer programme at The Dell! We will be resuming our annual August outing in Stratford with Bottom’s Dream, conceived and directed by Pat Cannings and Graham Paton.
Although it draws its material from the same play as our main summer show this year, Bottom’s Dream is something altogether different which tells the story of Nick Bottom the weaver in a unique way. Read more below to discover what it's all about...
Our big day in Stratford is on 12th August. Then, as in previous years, we will do a tour of local venues at the beginning of October – dates for this are booked between the 5th and the 11th in Bradford on Avon, Bath, Chippenham, Corsham and Devizes. The show will make the very most of the opportunities for mayhem and comedy that the scenario offers! There is scope for a cast of about a dozen or so and we hope there are plenty of members who would like to join the fun.
“I have had a dream past the wit of man to say what dream it was … It shall be called ‘Bottom’s Dream’ because it hath no bottom…”
