Sunday 17th July

Doors open 1 hour before performance

“The course of true love never did run smooth…”

Hermia loves Lysander. Lysander loves Hermia. But Demetrius loves Hermia. And Helena loves Demetrius.

They all run away into the woods where the mischievous fairy Puck has plenty of tricks in store for them! Meanwhile, the local cricket team is getting together to rehearse a play…

Join Scoot for their outdoor, sixty-minute, family-friendly production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Touring cricket clubs in the Southeast, six actor-musicians present one of Shakespeare’s favourite comedies, with a Scoot ‘spin’. Get ready for confusion, chaos and costume changes!

Expect music, magic, and cricket bat sword fights!

Whether you’re 5 or 105, a Shakespeare newcomer or a Bard aficionado – Scoot has something for everyone. So, bring a chair & picnic blanket, enjoy the hospitality of your local cricket club and let Scoot entertain you!

**** “I loved it” – THE TELEGRAPH

‘There are lots of laughs to be had, a few cricket jokes and more live music, which lends itself beautifully to both the play and the delightful setting. **** – WESTENDBESTFRIEND

“We can safely say that Scoot will surprise you…we’re completely converted by their accessible adaptations which are unpretentious, silly fun.” – THE FAMILY STAGE
