A Midsummer Nights Dream

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Fraser MacLeod
Designed by Kenny Miller 
 
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is wing'd Cupid painted blind.

This summer, as part of the Festival Fringe, Scottish Youth Theatre Summer Festival participants will perform an exciting and new promenade adaptation in the beautiful surroundings of the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh. 
 
A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the tale of four young lovers Hermia & Lysander and Helena & Demetrius. Hermia has been promised to Demetrius, when she in fact loves Lysander. Helena is in love with Demetrius but he loves his Hermia. The story unravels deep in the woods where magic, fairies and Athenian craftsmen plot and play with the lovers and the ensuing japes make for one of the best-loved romantic comedies of all time.

What country, friends, is this?
 
Returning to the Tron Theatre for the 36th annual Summer Festival, Scottish Youth Theatre proudly presents Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night as part of a summer series of Twisted Shakespeare productions.
 
A shipwrecked girl, separated from her twin brother, finds herself marooned in a strange land. In a bid to survive she disguises herself as her brother, encountering a lovelorn Duke, a mourning Countess, a drunkard and a fool, before becoming embroiled in a complex tangle of love and deceit...
 
Twelfth Night continues Scottish Youth Theatre’s reputation for bold, accessible stagings of Shakespeare’s famous works, including acclaimed productions of Romeo and Juliet (2003), Macbeth (2000) and Hamlet (2009), which featured a female cast in the leading role.
