Propeller revives Midsummer Night Dream and Comedy of Errors
All-male theatre company Propeller has announced its touring productions for the 2013-14 season
Propeller artistic director Edward Hall's productions of The Comedy of Errors and A Midsummer Night's Dream, which premiered in 2008/9 and 2010/11 respectively, will be revived later this year.They will tour internationally from autumn 2013 to summer 2014, to venues including Plymouth, Guildford, Bath, High Wycombe, Girona, Sheffield, Coventry, Nottingham, Salford, Canterbury, Cheltenham, Norwich, Newcastle, Marseille, Edinburgh, Craiova, Caracal, Neuss and Hampstead (where Hall is artistic director).
According to press material, "A Midsummer Night's Dream has enchanted packed houses all over the world. Love and illusion collide when two pairs of lovers become entangled in fairy mischief on the eve of a Royal Wedding. Dreams and reality become interchangeable and romantic chaos ensues.
"In The Comedy of Errors, two sets of estranged twins, separated at birth, find themselves in the same city 25 years later. A series of mistaken identities, assumed personas, and wild mishaps bring a family crisis – so complicated that time itself loses the plot – into focus."
All members of the all-male Propeller company will appear in both productions.
