Top to Bottom: the Watch Your Head cast offer an ‘immersive’ approach to ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’

I was lucky enough last week to attend a rehearsal for a stunning production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that opens next Wednesday. It fulfils the criteria I outlined above for making a play work for a drama-sceptic like me.

The production takes place, in midsummer, in one of the most magnificent settings in the country – the Savill Gardens, in Windsor Great Park.

There will be plenty of guidance, so no member of the audience should get lost.

Sara Langridge, whose idea the production was, first tried it out in Maidenhead a year ago; and such was the success that she, with the director, Sasha McMurray, have managed to raise the funds to achieve something more ambitious this summer.

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor.
