Where: Stubbings Estate, Henley Rd, Maidenhead SL6 6QL
Time: 7.30pm
When: Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24th June 2017

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.

Performed by local theatre group, The Garden Players and directed by John Timewell, these open air annual productions always prove to be very popular.

The lawns of Stubbings House will open from 5.30pm, allowing the audience to enjoy their picnics with a view before the performance starts.
