“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 with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred metres away.
