“The course of true love never did run smooth...”

The Festival Players present Shakespeare's most popular comedy, set in an enchanted forest with fairies, sparring lovers and a group of amateur actors who are putting on a play...
Rather fittingly, it's all performed in the magically apt surroundings of Tresco Abbey Garden on a midsummer night...
While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.
A Summer treat for the whole family.
