'Lord what fools these mortals be!'


"It's Exeter, its 2021 and all Hermia wants is to be with her vegan barista boyfriend. However her business tycoon father Egeus has other plans. He wants his daughter to wed his latest intern; the up and coming Demetrius, who is loved by the slightly awkward Helena.


Things really take a turn when the lovers are plunged into a story of magic and mischief as rival fairies cause chaos. Oberon has forsaken his woodland home and sworn off love, but Titania has a plan to bring him back around."


Merging Shakespearean and modern text, the AYC will bring one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies into the present day! We will be looking for a fantastic cast of young people age 11-18 to help create this all-new production, directed by our very own Artistic Director Ben Goulding.

Rehearsals will run from Saturday 9th January- Saturday 1st May and be held 1-3pm at the Cygnet Theatre. The final performance will take place on the last week of term on the Cygnet Theatre stage. Currently, we hope that this will be a live performance, however will record the show for families and friends to watch at home if this is not possible. The Anthos Young Company is the perfect place for both experienced performers and first-timers alike.


Applications for newcomers will open on Saturday 12th December at 10am. Rehearsals will run from Saturday 9th January to Saturday 1st May.
