Bottom's Dream

Shakespeare Live's 'Bottom's Dream' is touring five local venues over the next few days.

This is a really fun show, taking large sections of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and adding another outer layer so it becomes a 'play within a play within a play' and very different in interpretation to the company's acclaimed summer production, while being just as entertaining.

The tour opens at St Margaret's Hall in Bradford on Avon this week (reserve on 07780 938107 or just pay on the door), then goes to The Mission Theatre in Bath on Friday (buy in advance from www.bathboxoffice.org.uk), and finishes the week at a new venue, The Cause in Chippenham (reserve on 07780 938107 or just come along).

After a couple of days' break, the play is at The Pound in Corsham on Tuesday 10th (www.poundarts.org.uk) and the run finishes on Wednesday 11th at The Wharf in Devizes (www/wharftheatre.co.uk).

Nic Proud, who has performed in a few RTC shows over the years, has just published his first novel - The Sand Empress, and it's available on Amazon.

<<Neferuset, Empress of the Nile has one simple rule – obey every one of her commands and no one dies. Seems reasonable, but strange things are happening in Giza. The summer’s hotting up and tempers are fraying.

What’s needed is a potential invasion by the Holy Roman Empire and major internal strife owning to poor town planning. That will calm things down.

And it’s not as if the dead are rising from the grave… is it?>>
