Old-Time-Radio Adaptation of Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream
The second of our two April radio plays will be A Midsummer Nights Dream. LBSCs presentation puts the spotlight on the King and Queen of Fairyland, who are having marital troubles, and a group of rough Athenian laborers who are preparing a dainty play called Pyramus and Thisbe (which is very like Romeo and Juliet). The text of LBSCs production is Shakespeares, edited for approximately an hours presentation, with the scenes connected by brief narrative passages.
Both radio plays are part of our annual month-long celebration of Shakespeares birthday (April 23rd). Its a great way to promote Shakespeare and serves as an accessible introduction to his plays to audiences of all ages. The actors dress as old-time-radio performers from the 1940s, work in front of live microphones, and each performance is webcast live over the internet from the Goad Theatre.
