SHAKESPEARE Live returns this autumn with a local tour of Bottom’s Dream, following their successful summer production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Seend.

Rather than wait until next summer for another performance, the company have decided to tour their version of the Bottom story from The Dream. This hilarious adaptation, which tells the story of Nick Bottom in a unique way, was devised and directed by Shakespeare Live stalwarts Pat Cannings and Graham Paton and was performed at The Dell in Stratford upon Avon in August.

This was the fifth highly successful visit to The Dell, with the group performing to around 500 people. While the company often perform outdoors, customers won’t have to fear the rain and cold as the upcoming tour will is inside, with performances in Bradford on Avon, Bath, Chippenham, Corsham and Devizes.

The tour takes place between October 5-11 and all performances start at 8pm. More details and ticket prices can be found at: St Margaret's Hall, Bradford on Avon, 07780 938107 (October 5); The Mission Theatre, Bath, (October 6); The Cause, Chippenham, 07780938107 (October 7); The Pound, Corsham, (October 10); The Wharf, Devizes, (October 11).
