"FOOTSBARN'S carnivalesque production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", on the other hand, is a world unto itself. Footsbarn, indeed, is a theatre festival unto itself, a wonderfully eclectic mixture of styles and influences, of nationalities and cultures, all melded into a seamlessly fluid torrent of pure theatre. East and West, North and South meet in this production, which makes use of circus clowning, carnival processions, tribal dances, Kabuki, commedia dell'arte, farce and surrealism to create its sense of wonder, its pleasure and magic."|
Fintan O’Toole, The Irish Times
"At one point Bottom looks round at the audience and cries, "We're surrounded, Peter! Who are they? They must be fairies!" Well, we weren't. We were fans."
Dorothy Mcmillan, Glasgow Herald
This revival sees the first perfomance of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in nearly 15 years and we are looking forward to seeing and hearing one of our favourite productions in our tent once again. The tour begins in July and will take the play all over the world performing in theatres and festivals.
