Markeaton Park


19th - 23rd June 1990


Keith Briars

Comedy, romance and magic combined to wonderful effect in our 1990 production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. Markeaton Park provided a suitably leafy setting for the show which was directed by Keith Briars and proved to be perfect summer fun for audiences who flocked to enjoy classic Shakespeare in the open air.
