A touring theatre company will return to Workington on June 27 and 28 to perform two free performances of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Oddsocks Productions have been invited by Workington Town Council to take over Workington’s Hall Park for a third year to put their unique spin on the comedy.

They are celebrating their 30th anniversary year with another high-energy, feel-good, family theatre show. There will be music, magic and mayhem as they bring the story into the 21st Century with a modern twist.

Four young lovers run away to a summer festival in the woods to escape the stress of parental expectations at home. They unwittingly find themselves the subjects of tricks played on them, with hilarious results. Add to that a troupe of amateur actors hired to play at the festival for an evening of hilarious family entertainment.

No booking or tickets are required and performances start at 7pm.

The audience are asked to bring picnics, drinks, seats and blankets. Food and drinks stalls will also be available.
