Shakespeare Festival promises a dream start

THE Isle of Wight Shakespeare Company promises audiences two days full of "such stuff as dreams are made on" with the new Isle of Wight Shakespeare Festival.

Fresh from the debut run of Much Ado About Nothing, the recently-formed company is holding an array of events on Wednesday, August 27 and Thursday, August 28 at East Dene in Bonchurch.

The festival will include workshops, a 'Midsummer Market', a journey through the sonnets with 'Elizabethans in Love' and a production of 'Twelfth Night' by mainland theatre company 'Oddbox'.

Headlining both days of the event is the company’s own production of 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream', directed by Hannah Brewer.

To round off the festival, the IWSC is hosting the 'Grand Faerie Ball' in aid of Parkinson’s UK, the evening after the Thursday, August 28 production. The ball will include live music, food, a 'faerie photo booth' and entertainment from the company players themselves.

The organisers encourage all guests to wear appropriately fantastical costumes.
