The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble and the women of SQCC are delighted to bring you a collage of music, movement, and memorable scenes from the terribly tangled web that is A Midsummer Night’s Dream...

Three worlds collide in this story of magic and mischief, where feuding fairies and fleeing lovers grapple with jealously and chase love. Meanwhile, in the ensuing mayhem, a little band of actors desperately try to put on a play!

The third time’s a charm for this year’s Shakespeare Prison Project, which began in March with a robust and enthusiastic ensemble of women choosing A Midsummer Night’s Dream for their 2020 production. But much like the play, the path to performance was not smooth, with the project suspended twice due to COVID-19. After the sad departure of some cast, and the jubilant introduction of others, our energetic band of players are ready to invite you to come and dream with us!

Each performance will be followed by a Q&A with the cast and morning/afternoon tea.
