We discussed the origin of the shows, funding, the pre-rehearsal period series of workshops and the overall storylines of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

(Lakespeare & Co. as part of its production model engage the cast in a seriers of technique workshops before they even engage with the script. In these workshops they learn how to analyse Shakespeare’s text and deliver his verse. )

This is early days in the production process and we look forward to checking in with the cast again with rehearsals under their belt. Stay tuned!

This podcast was recorded at Communities at Work.
