Brand new for 2018! With her own dynamic version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream Ursula takes up the plays poignant themes of arranged marriage, rebellion, awakening and acceptance and presents them in an insightful and thoroughly uplifting retelling of the Shakespeare classic, in plain English (apart from a peppering of verse) and with bags of mischief & jaw dropping background into the significance of all the old midsummer mayhem.
The piece was originally commissioned by the national ‘Celebrating Shakespeare Festival’ in 2016 as one of the Bard’s 400th anniversary events. Ursula then toured it to secondary schools in Leeds and Greater Manchester along with a series of folktales that inspired other Shakespeare plays. A Midsummer Night’s Dream was received so rapturously that Ursula decided to develop it further into a one woman show!
