“Roll up, Roll up” - The Fair has come to town!
The Magic of the Fairground comes to London’s Bankside this summer.
Two pairs of lovers find themselves in the midst of a dispute between the King and Queen of the Fairies, a mischievous Puck flies among them with a love potion that causes all manner of high jinks and drama. Meanwhile, cue scripts in hand, Bottom and The Mechanicals, a troupe of amateur actors, are trying to rehearse a play…
Join this 90 minute, fast-paced, colourful production of Shakespeare’s magical comedy romp, and watch the mayhem unfold.
The course of true love never did run smooth. (Lysander, Act 1 Scene 1)
What do you do with four actors in a forest? Give them a cue script…and that’s your cue to come along
The Rose is an indoor archaeological site; it is advisable to dress warmly because there is no heating. There are no toilets, so please use those at Shakespeare’s Globe, which is 200 metres away.
