Pop Up Shakespeare

Scenes from Shakespeare presented in the beautiful grounds of Polesden Lacey, the National Trust property set in the Surrey Hills. In June 2019 our original adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Deam play will play out on the South Terrace with the magnificent house at Polesden Lacey as our backdrop. This 20 minute junior version of Shakespeare's play will be presented by three performers with a multitude of hats, romantic wrong turns, spirited sprites AND audience participation. Plus we will pop up in the glorious gardens with scenes from two more Shakespeare plays – all done in our very particular way. Fun for the whole family IS assured.

We are delighted to be back at Polesden Lacey for a sixth successive year of Pop Up, with live musical accompaniment provided by the traditional sounds of Perdix.

 Dates : 15th & 22nd June 2019
 Times : Pop Up begins at 1.30 pm & will be repeated each afternoon
 Price : FREE with your entrance to the grounds

Pop Up Shakespeare is presented in association with Polesden Lacey Shakespeare Ltd, the charitable trust that, for over 50 years, has performed a full Shakespeare production on the open air stage at Polesden.  This Summer, PLS presents Love's Labour's Lost on Saturdays & Sundays, 29th & 30th June, 6th & 7th July.
