The Watermill Ensemble presents Shakespeare Unlocked


By William Shakespeare
Adapted by Danielle Pearson

Mon 04 Nov 2019 - Fri 08 Nov 2019

‘If we shadows have offended, Think but this, and all is mended, That you have but slumbered here. While these visions did appear…’


Three actors unlock Shakespeare’s enchanting play in a fast-paced 75 minute production with live music.

Midsummer’s night. The costume store backstage at a theatre. Things begin to come alive…

Sprites, fairies and young lovers collide in Shakespeare’s beguiling comedy of magic and mischief. Over the course of a single night, hearts are broken, vows are made and dreams are chased. With change in the air and emotions more fickle than ever before, who will the lovers’ hearts be promised to when the dawn sun rises?

There will be a free post-show Q&A following performances from Tuesday to Friday. 

This production will tour to schools. For more information about the tour call 01635 570927.
