Summer Fundraiser: A Midsummer Nights Dream

The Penn

The award-winning outdoor theatre company, Illyria, is restaging their much-loved production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. An enduring tale of love and loss, this production promises magic and mischief for all ages. Escape into the great outdoors for the perfect midsummer night of entertainment in the beautiful grounds of Pensylvania Castle.

Five couples – three human, one fairy, and one mythical – find their relationships tested, probed and indecently exposed when a troupe of amateur theatricals bumble into the forest to rehearse a play. Shakespeare’s masterpiece explores every colour in the spectrum of love. Add to this confusion, magic and mischief - and you have the perfect comedy for a summer evening. 

This Summer Fundraiser is being organised by our main sponsors The Penn and all proceeds from tickets sales will go towards supporting b-side's growing community and youth programmes.
