The Magic of Shakespeare – an evening of comic and tragic sword and sorcery.
BMH Productions make their participation at the Oxford Shakespeare Festival the centrepiece of their 10th anniversary celebrations.
Having been performing 1 hour versions of the Bard’s plays at the RSC’s Dell theatre for the past 8 years, this year they bring two of them to Oxford, on the same night, with the same cast in both plays! Marvel at the tragic journey of Macbeth from noble, loyal Lord to vengeful King. Then laugh at Bottom’s transformation from hapless amateur actor to full on Ass!
BMH’s Macbeth will be a full-on medieval affair, with broad swords aplenty, their fast-paced Midsummer Night’s Dream will be a more modern and twisted affair, all with the beautiful original language of William Shakespeare.
This is the perfect evening out for well-established Shakespeare fans wanting to revisit some of his most famous moments and also the perfect introduction for casual and new audiences to the greatest play writer who ever lived, 400 years after he passed away.
