A Midsummer Night's Dream
Published by Oberon
This version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, adapted and abridged by director Carl Heap, preserves the core of Shakespeare's plot, retains the original language, yet is presented very much with the target age group in mind
And Carl Heap's inspiring introduction will help readers, teachers, and practitioners to imagine, produce, and stage their own version
'...in the night, imagining some fear, How easy is a bush supposed a bear!'
With all the dark undercurrents of the traditional fairytale, Shakespeare weaves in farce, slapstick, romance and revelry into some of his most lyrical poetry to create what is perhaps his most joyous play
