Picnic Shakespeare – Bottoms Dream

Atlas Theatre Company’s Picnic Shakespeare Program touring around schools in the North East of England, with a public performance in Mowbray Park, Sunderland City Centre on the 22nd May 2016!

Shakespeare’s timeless classic ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ has taken a new form under the name of ‘Bottoms Dream’ an all new, fun, high energy and visually exciting adaptation by Clive Kneller designed to familiarise children with the wonderful works of William Shakespeare.

Whilst staying true to Shakespeare’s language and narrative this vibrant, shortened adaptation explores the story of the mechanicals putting on a play whilst the plots of the Fairy King (Oberon) against his Queen (Titania) cause’s tricks to be played by the mischievous Puck jeopardising the mechanicals final show.

Bottom’s Dream is perfect for school years 5 to 8 and is a fantastic introduction to Shakespeare and his many works.
