Energetic, stripped back Shakespeare

 A Midsummer Night's Dream Theatre
A Midsummer Night's Dream 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream playfully depicts the comically intertwining tales of feuding forest gods, midnight elopements and staging a theatre show. This energetic, 90 minute production of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy stays true to Shakespeare’s text while presenting it in an exuberant and stripped back style.

“Enthralling, fresh and relevant theatre” The Good Review

Wednesday 10 February, 8pm

British Comedy Thriller 

The Legend of Barney Thomson (15)

Barney Thomson, awkward, diffident, Glasgow barber, lives a life of desperate mediocrity and his uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer.

“This deliciously macabre comedy falls into the fine tradition of what might be called net-curtain grotesque. This is pulp with the seeds left in, and you’ll be picking them from between your teeth for weeks.” The Telegraph

Wednesday 24 February, 7.30pm
(15) 94 minutes
