“The course of true love never did run smooth…”

Hermia loves Lysander. Lysander loves Hermia. But Demetrius loves Hermia. And Helena loves Demetrius.

They all run away into the woods where the mischievous fairy Puck has plenty of tricks in store for them! Meanwhile, the local cricket team is getting together to rehearse a play…

 

Join Scoot for their outdoor, sixty-minute, family-friendly production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with live music, magic, and cricket bat sword fights!

Touring cricket clubs in the Southeast, six actor-musicians present one of Shakespeare’s favourite comedies, with a Scoot ‘spin’. Get ready for confusion, chaos, and costume changes.

Whether you’re 5 or 105, a Shakespeare newcomer, or a Bard aficionado – Scoot has something for everyone. So, bring a picnic blanket, enjoy the hospitality of your local cricket club and let Scoot entertain you!

This is an outdoor, seated performance so please bring your own chairs and blankets. Doors open 60 minutes prior to the performance.

What the press say


I loved it. Well played, perfectly pitched, alfresco production.

The Telegraph

There are lots of laughs to be had, a few cricket jokes and more live music, which lends itself beautifully to both the play and the delightful setting.

West End Best Friend

We can safely say that Scoot will surprise you...we're completely converted by their accessible adaptations which are unpretentious, silly fun.
