Directed by Edward Hall
Designed by Michael Pavelka


Propeller presents a sixty minute version of its award-winning production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, especially devised for young audiences and known as Pocket Dream.

Under Edward Hall’s direction, this all-male Shakespeare company combines a rigorous approach to the text with a physical aesthetic to create productions full of clarity, poetry, speed, and imagination. Pocket Dream will deliver a fresh and inspiring introduction to Shakespeare.

The ensemble creates a relaxed and engaging atmosphere in which to enjoy the performance, as well encouraging the young audience to give an open and uninhibited response afterwards.

Pocket Propeller is the ideal introduction not only to Shakespeare, but to the thrill and excitement of theatre.  A pocket-sized dream come true.

A 40 minute post-show Q&A session is included. You will have a chance to ask the actors about the play, Shakespeare, acting and anything else that might come to mind!

“Propeller proves again the value of a true ensemble and a director who treats Shakespeare’s plays as if they’d just been written… I would have cried if I hadn’t been laughing so much”
