Open Air Theatre Production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM


  Take a step back in time with Chapterhouse Theatre Company to meet Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Austen’s notorious heroine. When Elizabeth meets the terse and abrupt Mr. Darcy, she loathes him at first sight. But is there more to him than meets the eye?

  Brought to life by award-winning writer Laura Turner, this adaptation has been a favourite of Chapterhouse audiences for years and will be a joy to perform in the company’s 20th year of touring. Join friends and family for an evening of theatre beneath the stars, basking in the glow of this timeless classic.



  There will be regular updates about new and existing shows on this page so please continue checking our website in the lead up to our summer tours. Remember to refresh the page if you have visited the site before for the most up to date information.

  Please bring rugs or low back seating. Performances go ahead in all but the worst weather.
