Pop Up Shakespeare - 2013

Short memorable scenes from Shakespeare, and a "junior" version of A Midsummer Night's Dream performed in various settings around the grounds of Polesden Lacey.

Pop Up Shakespeare, presented in collaboration with The Cat's Grin Theatre Company, was very well received by audiences on two Saturdays in June 2013 and there are plans for performances in the summer of 2014.

Turn the corner and there will be actors performing one of Shakespeare’s gems on the lawns, amongst the trees and near the house.  Some scenes will be in the original form and some will be specially adapted to make them more child-friendly.

The scenes will be repeated during the afternoon, so that you can make your own itinerary, with plenty of time to walk, picnic, play games, admire the views or visit the house.

At the end of the day you will have been re-acquainted with old favourites or simply entertained by scenes which have moved people for 400 years.
