In summer 2022 we remounted (AGAIN!) our production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but this time we were supported by the fabulous ‘house’ scheme delivered by Farnham Maltings and the Arts Council. 


We partnered with theatres and their local cricket clubs to create new relationships in the communities we visited. Tickets were purchased via the theatre, but the show was performed at the cricket club. 


This was also our first sustainable design, from the brilliant mind of Alana Ashley, who created flowers from recycled cups and forks and our forest was made from reclaimed timber. We visited our first rugby club and swimming pool on this tour also!


Full tour venues: Dorking Halls Plays in the Park, Quay Arts at Newclose County Cricket Club on the Isle of Wight, The Mill Arts Centre at Bicester and North Oxford Cricket Club, Bearsted CC, Valley End CC, Henley Kenton Theatre at Henley Rugby Club, Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds at Bury St Edmunds CC and Farnham Maltings at Farnham CC
