‘1595’: Midsummer Night’s Dream/Romeo & Juliet

1595-FB-Banner

Following on from the June production, the Company will be returning to The Assembly Rooms in Ludlow during the period 5 – 17 September. This will be our most ambitious venture to date and all to be presented under the title “The 1595 Season”

What we are going to be doing is presenting two Shakespeare plays: A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo & Juliet. The plan is that they will be performed in rep with alternating performances.

Both plays are thought to have been written by William Shakespeare in or about 1595 (hence our label) and there are links between the two. Did the story of Pyramus and Thisbie give Shakespeare the idea for Romeo and Juliet? Or were the young ill fated couple from Verona the subject of a subsequent parody in A Midsummer Night’s Dream?

The plays are, and will in our productions be, linked. But we are re-arranging the digits  and both plays will be set not in 1595 but rather …1955.
