Summer 2017

July 2017 will be an exciting time for Shakespeare Live and for our many loyal and regular audience members.

This is the month that will see us step out on stage for the first time in our new venue. We now know that our new home is to be Cleeve House at Seend, a venue ideally suited to this year's show, the perennial favourite 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. Directed with characteristic flair by Rod Moor-Bardell it is sure to be a visual treat and a comic delight!

'The Dream' is one of William Shakespeare's best loved plays. Its mix of tangled love, enchanted forest, magical fairies and aspiring thespians has captivated audiences throughout the ages.

Shakespeare Live's first production at Cleeve House promises an evening of spectacular entertainment as director Rod Moor-Bardell weaves a tapestry of song, dance, music and above all excellent acting for your enjoyment of this timeless play.

The show will mark the beginning of a new chapter in the life of this long-standing, successful and highly regarded theatre company - whether you are an old friend or an interested newcomer, this one is absolutely not to be missed. Booking opens in April and you will find all you need on our 'Booking' and 'Performance Info' pages.

(If you were a visitor to our 2016 production of The Tempest you may have seen our 2017 show advertised as King Lear. Rest assured, our Lear will come, but in view of our change of venue we have decided to hold it over for another year...)
