ED2012 Theatre Review: Twisted Shakespeare – A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Scottish Youth Theatre)

By | Published on Saturday 4 August 2012

Edinburgh’s Botanical gardens may well have been made to have ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ performed in them. They provide the perfect backdrop to one of Shakespeare’s most well loved comedies. Scottish Youth Theatre guide the audience through the gardens as the action unfolds. All the actors involved did a fantastic job, particularly the fairies, who sang and danced their way around the audience, encouraging them to wherever the next scene was staged. Standing under the trees, you are taken away into the woods with the lovers and the fairies, as The Scottish Youth Theatre succeeds in bringing Shakespeare to life. Worth a watch, but bring a brolly!

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, 31 Jul-4 Aug, 7.00pm.
