One of William Shakespeare’s comedic plays will be brought to life by a Worle theatre group next month, and readers can win tickets to see the show.

Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society’s (WODS) Musical Theatre Company will perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Tropicana, in Marine Parade, from August 2-4 at 7.30pm, with an additional matinee performance at 2.30pm on August 2.

The award-winning theatre company will venture into the land of the Bard by performing one of Shakespeare’s most well-known plays.

It has had many different adaptations over the years and has stood the test of time.

On a midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule.

While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play.

Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue.

WODS performance is a site-specific piece of theatre, as the audience are required to move around the purpose designed theatre space with the actors as the play unfolds.

The group was nominated for Somerset Fellowship Of Drama awards for both its 2017 plays, Made In Dagenham and Priscilla Queen Of The Desert.

Tickets, priced £8-10, can be purchased at or on the door of each show.

The Mercury has teamed up with WODS to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets each to a performance of their choice.
