An open air production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is to be performed at Kirby Hall near Corby.

The Shakespearean romantic comedy is to be performed by the Chapterhouse Theatre Company.

The play is a tale of magical forests, fairies and travelling players.

Bring a picnic and settle down with family and friends for an evening of theatre under the stars. Chapterhouse has been producing open-air Shakespeare productions since it was formed in 2000.

Almost every year it has featured a production of A Midsummer NIght’s Dream.

Producer Richard Main said the play is the foundation for every comedy we see today. He said: “It is surprising how little our collective sense of humour has changed.”

The production at Kirby Hall is on Saturday, August 23, at 7pm.
