A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Passions are set to be tested in Shakespeare’s universally loved comedy. Get set for confusion, magic and mischief- perfect for a summer’s evening. Illyria is widely celebrated for its productions so you can expect a rip-roaring performance.

Much Ado About Nothing
Thursday 4 August, 7.30pm

This summer The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are touring their  production of Much Ado About Nothing – Shakespeare’s battle-of-the-sexes comedy; a story of trickery, treachery and, ultimately, true love.

For the past decade The Lord Chamberlain’s Men have brought their own special brand of authentic and engaging all-male productions to the UK’s most historically and visually stunning venues and this year’s production, in the year that marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, will be no different.

" Friendship is constant in all other things, save in the office and affairs of love. "
- William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing

Sense and Sensibility

Sunday 4 September, 7pm

Join Chapterhouse Theatre Company as Elinor and Marianne Dashwood make their first forays into the exciting world of Regency society. This lively tale follows the sisters as they fall in love, make mistakes and experience heartbreak for the first time in their quest to find a balance between sense and sensibility.

Chapterhouse has an established tradition in Austen adaptations, receiving fantastic reviews and performing to sell out venues with adaptations of her warm witted romantic tales. In past years these have also included productions of Pride & Prejudice and Emma, but this summer Chapterhouse are proud to welcome Sense and Sensibility back to the stage.
