I love being outside, love theatre, and love Shakespeare’s romantic comedies so had always wanted to go to a Shakespeare in the park production when I lived in the US. I had heard about Bard in the Botanics but wasn’t sure about buying tickets to something that could end up being soaking wet and cold.
Seeing an advert for Chapterhouse Theatre’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream closer to home at Stirling castle was too good a chance to pass up.
Last Thursday after work, Honey and I brought our camp chairs, warm and waterproof layers, flasks of hot tea, and snacks and joined the rest of the audience in the castle’s gardens.
It was a lovely night- a very entertaining cast, relaxed atmosphere, and a chance to connect with some summer magic. Oh, and it even stayed dry. I’ll definitely risk the rain for an outdoor production again.
