Short Synopsis

Based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, THE DREAMING  is another successful collaboration between Goodall and writer Charles Hart.  It translates the original play into a pre-WWI West Country idyll, where a small community moves between village and magical woodland in a score that is fuelled by English folk and choral traditions.

“Tim Rice once said that you need at least ten great numbers to make a successful musical. You more or less have those by the interval in this show.” Daily Mail (Michael Coveney), 2002
