Edinburgh University Shakespeare Company A Midsummer's Tempest

Theatre

5+

Did Shakespeare predict the climate crisis? And is the solution hidden in his works? Shakespeare's hidden climate play delights and enlightens. This new mash-up of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest, and Macbeth humorously explores some of society’s current affairs; tackling themes of patriarchy, women’s rights, colonialism, climate change, and queerness through the chaos of one stormy night. This new adaptation stays true to the Bard’s humour and poetry in a punchy, purposeful play packed into one-hour. This world premiere is enchanting for audiences of all ages.
