Theatre company Rain or Shine are promising to delight family audiences once again this summer with their production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Cuckfield Recreation Ground on Friday, August 5 (7.30pm).

Spokesman Ken Meekings said: “With well-loved characters such as Bottom and Puck, Rain or Shine invite audiences into the intoxicating dream world of fairy queen and king, Titania and Oberon. This fast-paced jaunt through the Bard’s best loved comedy is filled with magic and mischief, inspired by warm nights, young love and an Elizabethan carnival atmosphere.

“Sure to delight family audiences from six to 96, this is an ideal choice for an outdoor theatrical event, bringing classical theatre into the heart of local communities as they travel across the UK from Devon to Northumberland, and Wales to Norfolk, visiting some of the country’s most picturesque castles, stately homes and gardens along the way.”

For tickets call 01444 451610 or visit www.rainorshine.co.uk.

“Audiences are requested to bring along low-backed seating or rugs, and a picnic to maximise their enjoyment of the al fresco performances. Full details of the tour and venues can be found on the Rain or Shine website and tickets can be purchased from each venue, through Ticketweb via www.rainorshine.uk, or by ringing 0330 660 0541.”
