This colourful, boisterous performance tells Shakespeare’s fantastical tale with much hilarity, and the cast’s tongue in cheek humour and playful energy make this a very entertaining hour. Adding charm to this performance is the sense of place, as we are transported from palace court to snowy woodland and back again, all by way of the contents of a seemingly bottomless wicker picnic hamper. This device gives this show an impromptu feel which is very appealing, and the addition of song just adds to the overall harmony as we follow the story with giggles and the reassuring knowledge that everything will work out in the end. Sedos’ version of this classic play is silly, sweet, and very witty.
