Our Summer production is A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s best-loved pieces.
Deep in the forest, lovers try to escape authority, actors try to escape prying eyes during rehearsals, and even faerie-folk try to escape their tormentors. Add more-than-a-dash of mischief to an urgent deadline, subtract the strictures of authority, multiply all by the magic of Titania and Oberon, and you have an evening of fun for all the family.
Dream will feature three of the four actors in our recent multi-award winning Drama Festival production My Second Best Bed, including Best Actress Natalie Smith.
Playing 28/29/30 June and 4/5/6/7 July at the White Rock, plus 13/14 July at St Briavels. Curtain Up at 8 pm (Evenings) or 3:30 pm (Matinees)

Our Recent Success: My Second Best Bed

The Sevenoaks Shakespeare Society
The Society was founded in 1997 to promote and enjoy the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, giving members the chance to get involved both on and off the stage. We mount a full-scale open-air Shakespeare production once a year, plus participation in Drama festivals, and we try to arrange a variety of activities during the year, such as workshops, theatre visits and social events.
