What’s it all about?
This is an immersive theatre experience presenting an original adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Just like the classic play, this twisted tale of love and hypnotism sees four young lovers tangled together by a meddlesome mesmerist.
Is ‘immersive’ code for ‘audience participation’?
The Midsummer Carnival is the handiwork of the creators of Cluedo: The Interactive Game. The audience participates in the theatrical work and interacts with actors but no-one is forcibly pulled up on stage or made to take part against their will.
