(The Tragedy Of) A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Royal & Derngate Theatre, Guildhall Road, Northampton

When a young woman’s choice is to marry a man of her father’s choosing or die, should she refuse? A series of mishaps and misunderstandings unfold when she takes matters into her own hands and escapes through an enchanted forest with her lover.

Is this a comedy with fools, fairies and flowers? Or is this a tragedy of manipulation, disorder and dark creatures? Throw in a chaotic battle between the Fairy King and Fairy Queen with some unusual capers between amateur actors and we ask the question: who is really in control of this midsummer night?

Directed by Erica Martin with design by Ross White and original music from Inlak’esh, Royal & Derngate’s The Actors Company explore a dark and quirky side to William Shakespeare’s most popular play.

Rebelfest

The Shed, 5 Yeoman Street, City Centre, LE1 1UT , Leicester

Leicester's own gypsy-folk bandits The Whiskey Rebellion are back in town, hosting a night of high-octane music with a rag-tag gathering of some of the best bands on the circuit. Teaming up with the indomitable pirate sea-shanty merchants Seas Of Mirth, and the hyper-energetic acoustic metalheads Inlak'esh, this night will feature a whopping six bands spread across two jam-packed stages, making this one event you literally cannot afford to miss. Get ready to dance yourself to death, as we give The Shed in Leicester an apocalyptic showdown of epic proportions, and give your eardrums the abuse they so richly deserve.
