We are delighted to be hosting a fantastic production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ amongst the vines at our home, the Chapel Down Winery on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July.
The performance by Ultraviolet Productions forms part of their 2022 tour and showcases their love for the circus and years of experience in touring Shakespeare. It promises to be a magical night out for all the family in the beautiful setting of our vineyards.
The forest of Fairyland is alive with imagination. An array of lost circus performers wander through the trees. Clowns cry. Dancers sway. And all around, fairies sing hypnotic lullabies.
A beloved favourite amongst audiences across the country, this comedy adaptation tells the story of vibrant young lovers lost in a forest one fateful Midsummer night. As they tiptoe deeper into the trees, they discover a family of forgotten clowns, ousted from fame by the younger, snazzier Mechanical Circus Troupe. As feuds ignite and passions swell, these warring carnivals will battle for the spotlight, desperate to win the hearts of their audience. By dawn, only one fact is certain: the course of true love never did run smooth.
An entirely original adaptation of Shakespeare's infamous comedy of love, magic, and dreams, Ultraviolet Productions unique blend of live music, expressive dance and mystifying magic promises to spin a tale as wild as the most love-sick imagination.
Roll up, roll up, and let the circus begin…
