Ursula Holden Gill tells

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

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. A Midsummer Night's Dream April 18

The piece was originally commissioned by the national ‘Celebrating Shakespeare Festival’  in 2016 as one of the Bard’s 400th anniversary events. However, it was received so rapturously that Ursula decided to develop it further into a one woman show.

At the Hillcrest Centre, Newhaven BN9 9LH.

Cafe opens 6.45pm. Tickets: £7 in advance or £9 on the door if available.
