Bolton Octagon are back with a live online production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Bolton Octagon are back with their first bash at a live streamed production offering an online version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream as the theatre’s £12million redevelopment is completed before reopening in December.
They are working with Guildford Shakespeare Company (GSC) to present streamed performances from Thursday 24th to Saturday 27th September 2020. This is a new version of GSC’s acclaimed open air production, which was directed by the Octagon’s Artistic Director Lotte Wakeham, who also directs this latest online version.
The 75-minute production, which will be live streamed on Zoom, features a cast of six actors. Making their Octagon Theatre debuts will be Jack Whitam, Emma Fenney, Sarah Gobran co-founder of GSC and Matt Pinches, another GCS co-founder, all of whom appeared in the 2017 production.
Joining them will be Misha Duncan-Barry and Nathan Ives-Moiba, who was nominated for the ‘Best Newcomer Award’ at the Manchester Theatre Awards for his performance in Tull at the Octagon.
Tickets for A Midsummer Night’s Dream will go on sale on Thursday 3rd September. Tickets will be priced at £20 per device (max 2 people per device), and £10 per additional viewer.
