Review: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Poltimore House and Grounds, Devon, August 2019) – A Midsummer with heart!
There was a great deal to laugh about in this production. More impressive, though, was the way it left the audience smiling afterwards. This was a Midsummer with heart as well as humour – a most rare vision indeed…
Tromeo and Juliet is a schlock horror adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet that, in its own distasteful way, possesses much more charm and intelligence than one might expect from a film which transforms Juliet into a cow-monster. In this review, I sift through the grotesque humour and terrible jokes in order to uncover some interesting new perspectives on a well-studied tragedy.
