FOR the last five months it has not been possible to experience live theatre – but Dingwall Players will present A Midsummer Night's Dream from Thursday to Saturday, September 10-12 at Storehouse of Foulis.

Over the last few weeks the Players have been meeting online to rehearse a shortened version of Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy.

Following the Scottish Government’s announcement that, barring any Covid related incidents, outdoor performances can take place after August 24, Dingwall Players will present an outdoor, non-seated, socially distanced production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Foulis' Storehouse on those three nights at 7pm

The theatre shows will happen outside Storehouse of Foulis.

Dingwall Players has drawn together a talented cast of local actors to present a fast moving, comic presentation of one of Shakespeare’s most widely performed plays.

Theseus is marrying Hippolyta. Hermia is in love with Lysander but Hermia’s father thinks Demetris a better match, but Helena is in love with Demetrius!

Meanwhile a group of six amateur actors rehearse their interpretation of the play Pyramus And Thisbe, hoping to perform it at the wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta.

The bulk of the action takes place in a forest, where Oberon and Puck cause mischief and mayhem for all!

The event is free but in order to comply with Covid regulations governing numbers and track and trace protocols, tickets will only be available online at www.dingwallplayers.org from August 24.

Foulis Storehouse will be serving meals from their Bothy until 6pm and beverages after that time.
