Romeo & Juliet directed by Gavin Bruce
It is a hot July in the summer of 1964. Brighton Pier is hosting its usual British holiday festivities but the bunting and garlands that bedeck the seaside resort are soon to be replaced by a beach strewn with bottles and broken deckchairs, as gangs of Mods and Rockers descend on the city. Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy is transported to Britain where the star-crossed lovers find themselves in the middle of a cultural clash. Set to a classic British pop score soundtrack, Romeo and Juliet combines lyrical poetry, comic characters and some of Shakespeare’s best fight scenes.

A Midsummer Night's Dream directed by David Jackson
Set in the vintage summer of 1977, this ‘Dream’ takes us on a whistle stop tour of the great songs of that year and through the different worlds of woods and town. This is accessible Shakespeare for all ages - a high energy generation game of chaos and fun. It takes full advantage of the beautiful amphitheatre at Bedales and the audience interaction that last year’s audiences revelled in will be back. The show draws on icons of light entertainment and the dark glamour of rock’n’roll. With a nod to Larry Grayson here and references to David Bowie and The Bee Gees there, this show will be glam, kitsch and a little bit naughty- but you’ll like it!
