AS the weather is heating up it’s the perfect time to go and see A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Studio Theatre, Salisbury.

The production, directed by Barry Matthews-Keel, commemorates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death in 1616.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic Shakespearean comedy with love stories confused by mistaken identity, in this case, caused by some mischievous fairies.

Some players are also rehearsing for a performance and one of them, Bottom, gets entangled in the web of confusions weaved by the fairies with hilarious outcomes.

Mark Honan brings life to the scenes where the players are rehearsing and performing with his excellent comedic performance as Bottom.

The star of the show is certainly Martha Osment who gives a fantastically playful performance as Puck.

Her characterisation of the cheeky fairy is spot-on and really leads the way for all the other fairies.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is on stage at Studio Theatre in Ashley Road until Saturday, July 23. It starts at 7:30pm.

Tickets are available from Salisbury Information Centre in Fish Row or by calling 01722 342860.
