A Midsummer Night’s Scream

30th August, 1st September, 2nd September 2017 7.30pm

Outdoor theatre at its best with this original production from the Packing Shed Theatre Company

A Midsummer Night’s Scream

by Neil D’Arcy-Jones

Fancy a Summer scare? Then join the Packing Shed Theatre company for a night of open-air theatre with a horrifying twist.

It’s Will Shakespeare meets Wes Craven when two actresses turn up for an Eighties film shoot at an old country house cut off from nowhere.

As they start to rehearse their scenes, under the watchful eye of a director who is more Vincent Price than Laurence Olivier, tales of fairies and love are soon replaced with stories of strange beasts and shadowy masked figures.

Will they survive the night? Who knows, just tuck yourself up in a blanket, eat that last sausage roll and enjoy the ride.

Tymperleys Garden will be open from 6pm for picnicking before the show.
