A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Last Friday, a group of intrepid Middle Years Shakespeare fans struck out down the M3 to Lord Wandsworth College, where they enjoyed a garden production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream to celebrate the Bard’s 400th anniversary.

The show starred Year 7 and 8 students from Lord Wandsworth College. Each scene was perfomed in a different corner of the Headmaster’s garden, with the audience led around by a chorus of fairies.

HCH had a superb showing on the picnic front: sandwiches, sushi, chocolate cake, strawberries and grand picnic rugs all spread out across the lawns, while nymphs whirled around us and flutes made merry music. It was a lovely opportunity for our Middle Years to see their peers performing in this well-loved Shakespeare comedy, while spending a magical evening away from London.
