Runaways. Fairies. Goblins. WATER PISTOLS!?! Look out, it’s Rubbish Shakespeare!

Performing on the of 10th June, The Rubbish Shakespeare Company cast of four have the Bard’s impish tale of forbidden love and pixies in their sights. 

Their plan, to stage the greatest edition of the Dream ever seen complete with magic in it and everything. Will they succeed? Of course not – they’re ‘Rubbish!’ Sit  back, relax and giggle along, as our four hapless idiots fail for an hour for your amusement. 

Full of high-octane slapstick action and mischievous storytelling, this vibrant reimagining brings belly laughs for all ages.

Expect a trail of wigs, bubble guns, life-size cardboard cutouts, and a frankly pitiful attempt at roller skating. 

Your kids will love it, and you will too. Book your tickets below!
