The Popular Mechanicals
September 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$50
Presented by Country Arts SA and State Theatre Company South Australia
A funny thing happened to me on the way to the theatre this evening, Shakespeare’s greatest clowns – the rude mechanicals from A Midsummer Night’s Dream – take centrestage in this wild re-imagining of what might have happened offstage during the Bard’s most loved comedy.
Perhaps the most famous group of amateur thespians of all time, the cast of the play-withina-play Pyramus and Thisbe, bumble their way through rehearsals, misadventures and sheer idiocy in an hysterically funny mix of verse, song and dance.
By Keith Robertson, William Shakespeare and Tony Taylor. Original Direction by Geoffrey Rush.
