Presented by Country Arts SA and State Theatre Company South Australia

A funny thing happened to me on the way to the theatre this evening, Shakespeare’s greatest clowns – the rude mechanicals from A Midsummer Night’s Dream – take centrestage in this wild re-imagining of what might have happened offstage during the Bard’s most loved comedy.

Perhaps the most famous group of amateur thespians of all time, the cast of the play-withina-play Pyramus and Thisbe, bumble their way through rehearsals, misadventures and sheer idiocy in an hysterically funny mix of verse, song and dance.

Ages 13+

By Keith Robertson, William Shakespeare and Tony Taylor. Original Direction by Geoffrey Rush.
