Rainbow Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream


Shakespeare under the stars at Worthing’s magical Highdown Gardens…

“Lord, what Fools these Mortals Be!”

Simply the world’s greatest, freshest and most original comedy, following the adventures of the funniest troupe of amateur actors ever; two hapless pairs of confused lovers, lost in the Night Wood; and the epic quarrel between the Fairy King and Queen, who becomes magically involved with Bottom, an ass (in both senses of the word!) This plays casts its spell every time it is experienced, and is also a wonderful introduction to children seeing their first Shakespeare.

Be sure to arrive early and bring your rugs, camping chairs and picnics!

Please note: Rainbow Shakespeare will perform in light to moderate rain. If the weather is severe and a performance is cancelled, tickets will be exchanged for another performance.

“Rainbow Shakespeare at Highdown is so close to perfection it’s almost unfair”
