What our promoters & audience say:
I want to express our appreciation to you for the success of the performance of A Midsummer-Night’s Dream in Duchess Wood. Despite the weather, it was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the imaginative in the way it was organised was impressive. The actors were also very clever at interacting with both children and adults. Many thanks again to all concerned.
Alastair Macbeth (Secretary, Friends of Duchess Wood):
Went last night to see TWTC’s version of ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’ at Arduine Gardens. WHAT A GREAT NIGHT! An anticipatory crowd was met by a female Bottom, played with just a hint of one of Catherine Tate’s caricatures, only much nicer. She proceeded to browbeat and brutalise everyone into the right frame of mind, great fun. A deliciously camp Puck, flitted in and out of the under growth, the willing band of mortals trailed about the gardens in the deepening gloom. Oberon, splendidly languid and world weary and Ah, Titania, everything any mortal and indeed Fairy Prince could possibly want. A hugely appreciative audience gave the brilliant cast a ‘standing ovation’ at the end. Shakespeare would not have been turning in his grave; he would have been capering on top with delight. Alexander Hamilton
We’ve been to a few Walking Theatre productions now and, quite simply, they rock. Our kids are transfixed for months afterwards and tonight the adults are glowing after an evening with Lady Macbeth. What a truly wonderful investment. The forest comes alive – even those of us who love it anyway, are drawn in further. Not only are the WTC superb entertainers, their eagerness and enthusiasm to socialise with the group (whatever age) afterwards, never ceases to amaze me and inarguably adds to their impact. Please lets have lots more from Sadie and Co …
