Are you creative? Are you interested in writing, acting and/or stage production? Are you 17 or older?

Then this exciting project could be for you!

William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a much loved comedy, set in a magical world presided over by the King of the Fairies (Oberon), into which a series of humans – would-be lovers and tradesmen – are manipulated into being and doing things they don’t want to be or do.

This project involves re-imagining and rewriting the play from a neurodiverse perspective. The project team will work in a supportive, creative environment and use Shakespeare’s characters and act/scene structure to re-create The Dream as a journey towards celebrating disability, diversity and the imperfect human.
