Adapted by Kelly Hunter with music composed by Tom Chapman.
Flute Theatre, who create productions especially for people with ASC and other special educational needs, return to the Orange Tree, with their unique and spellbinding performances, enabling everyone to enjoy Shakespeare.
The Orange Tree Theatre is wheelchair accessible and the performance is suited to every person with additional needs, including those who are non-verbal.
All participants and their families are welcome to join the cast for tea and biscuits after the performance.
Up to 15 young people on the spectrum become the participants for each performance, sitting with seven actors in a circle on stage.
Their families or carers sit just behind them to watch from the auditorium.
The actors encourage the participants to play sensory games which unravel the story of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
