A Midsummer Night’s Dream – for young actors

We ‘re pleased to publish a children’ s version of A Midsummer Night ‘s Dream – designed to be performed by a younger cast. There are parts for around 20 actors, but there are reasonable opportunities to double-up parts and reduce the cast size


It has been adapted by Tim Wilcock, who worked with the children of Shakespeare @ Traquair, to take this adaptation (or an earlier version of it) to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


You, too, can perform it. It is published here under a Creative Commons licence (see front page of the script) which allows you to share it, adapt it, and use it for a production.  If you want to contact Tim Wilcock  to find out how to stage it, etc., send me an email at playersshakespearemffev5@gmail.com, and I’ ll pass your message
