After last year’s sell out show of The Tempest, Oddsocks Productions return to Liverpool to celebrate their 30th Anniversary year and to help raise funds for Citizens Advice Liverpool and St Luke’s Bombed Out Church. This summer join the company for a festival of music, magic and mayhem as they bring that Shakespearean favourite “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, to life as you have never seen it before.
Every year Oddsocks delight audiences with their inspired approach to Shakespeare’s plays and their trademark interactive style. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with its easy-to-follow storyline and hilarious characters is perfect for the Oddsocks treatment that uses Shakespeare’s original lines in a high-energy, feel-good, family theatre show.
Four young lovers run away to a summer festival in the woods to escape the stress of parental expectations at home. Before long they unwittingly find themselves the subjects of tricks, played on them with hilarious results. Add to that a troupe of amateur actors hired to play at the festival and you have the perfect recipe for an evening of hilarious family entertainment.
“Like a poor man’s right in the law … ’tis come at last, and ’tis turned to a rusty armour”. After the mauling of legal aid, it feels likes not much has changed since Shakespeare’s time. This year Citizens Advice Liverpool celebrates 70 years of patching up that rusty armour. The Oddsocks weekend is an important fundraising event to help this charity continue to provide free legal advice to Liverpool’s citizens, and campaign for change. You can enjoy some wonderful outdoor theatre in the fabulous setting of St Luke’s Bombed out Church and at the same time prove how wrong Shakespeare was to say that lawyers ‘straight dream of fees’.
