A group of visually impaired performers from the Northern Academy of Performing Arts have linked up with Wyke College to present a production of one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays: A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The play features three interlocking plots, connected by a celebration of the wedding of Duke Theseus of Athens and the Amazon queen, Hippolyta, and set simultaneously in the woodland, and in the realm of Fairyland, under the light of the moon, is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and has been widely performed across the world.
This unique charity performance will take place at the Northern Academy of Performing Arts in Hull at 7.30pm on the 18th, 19th & 20th May along with a Matinee at Wyke College at 2pm on 16th May.
All proceeds from the performances are being donated to HERIB.
Angela Gregory, fundraiser for HERIB said: "What a lovely way to spend an evening - enjoying a classic play and helping people with sight loss at the same time. We would like to thank all the cast and production team for their wonderful generosity."
Tickets are £8 (£6 concessions) and are available by calling 01482 310690.
