Open Air Theatre 2021

Miserden Miserden, News

7pm 9th, 10th & 11th June 2021

Drama Students from the University of Gloucestershire present :

Every summer, students from the Drama degree course at The University of Gloucestershire perform a play by Shakespeare in the open air, in the Gloucestershire countryside. This year, we are lucky enough to be performing in the breathtaking, Jacobean Garden at Miserden, which was constructed only twenty years after the first performance of Twelfth Night in 1601. The mulberry tree in the garden is the same age as Shakespeare’s play too! We aim to fill this glorious garden with music and laughter and sumptuous costumes, so come and join us for heady summer’s evening of comedy that will move you!

Twelfth Night is a play that takes place in a stunning garden just like this, where almost every character has moments of madness in a passionate quest for love and for lost love. It is a romantic story and a farce, including one of the funniest practical jokes ever seen on stage!

‘Why, this is very midsummer madness!’

NB: Make sure to bring your own portable chair, rugs, warm and wet weather clothing!
