Shakespeare: Made in Aberdeen

On a Midsummer’s night, lovers get lost, fairies feud and a troupe of actors rehearse a play

…well try to.

A forest where the fairies rule and mischievous Puck ensures the course of true love is anything but smooth.

With comedy, romance, and Sprites of the night, Ten Feet Tall bring Aberdeen a fresh production of Shakespeare's enchanted masterpiece.

In additon to our general public performances we hosted:

- 2 Sold Out School Performances

-12 School and workshops around the NE

-Over 1200 NE School children engaged around Shakespeare

Supported by Aberdeen Common Good Fund and Creative Scotland
