“First-rate close-up promenade theatre meets one of the most exclusive and inspiring settings for a theatre production” Jon Paul Hedge, South Devon Herald Express review of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.




“This is possibly the most accessible, interactive and fun production of a Shakespeare play I have ever seen, proving to be equally engaging for the large number of small children who stood eagerly and wide-eyed at the front of the audience for the entire fifty minutes” Sophie Cowling, Redbrick.

"Butterfly's Dream is high energy, bags of fun fairy magic and I smiled from beginning to end." Steve Walker, Buxton Fringe
