“Oberons’s Cure”. In this prequel to A Midsummer Night’s Dream an old goat of a fairy is not capable of resisting a beautiful young ‘ooman woman. But the waspish Hippolyta, running amok in the forest, is more than a match for him. Love is thwarted as the human and fairy worlds collide. But will it triumph in the end? A funny and at times deeply romantic play about how we deal with desire.” Tickets www.therudemechanicaltheatre.co.uk, £16 adults, £9 children
“As You Like It”, remember to bring your chairs, rugs and picnics! The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons present their innovative and hilarious open-air version of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy, with folky, foot-stomping live music and their own inimitable brand of buffoonery. Tickets £15 adults, £6 children from the ticket office www.thepantaloons.co.uk
