Yeo Valley

YEO Valley will be the venue for a new production taking an innovative look at characters from two of Shakespeare’s plays.

One man show I, Peaseblossom and I, Caliban is a co-production by Bristol Old Vic and Company Of Angels in association with charity the Theatre Orchard Project.

It will be staged at the Blagdon-based Yeo Valley Organic Garden at 2pm and 6pm on June 6.

I, Peaseblossom tells the story of A Midsummer Night’s Dream through the fevered nightmares of the Bard’s most neglected fairy Peaseblossom, while I, Caliban is a sweet and sorry tale of injustice, inebriation and missing your mum, as told by Shakespeare’s monster Caliban, alone on Prospero’s island at the end of The Tempest.

The earlier performance is a matinee suitable for children aged eight and upwards.

Tickets, priced £5 and including a £5 food voucher, are available at
