Theatre: Hamlet/Midsummer Night’s Dream


After an acclaimed sell-out run of Twelfth Night at Smock Alley in 2014, PurpleCoat return to their favourite tour destination with a double helping of the Bard. Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and his greatest tragedy, Hamlet, are presented by the same ensemble in their trademark innovative style that saw Twelfth Night hailed as ‘deliciously funny’ and ‘a total success.’ Returning to Smock Alley for their first show of 2015, don’t miss ‘one of the UK’s fastest rising ensembles’ in this unique Shakespeare double-bill.

PurpleCoat are entirely self-funded, having been established back in 2008. They have played across England in Manchester, London and Stratford-Upon-Avon as parts of the World Shakespeare Festival, the International Youth Arts Festival and the 24/7 Theatre Festival, as well as establishing an acclaimed, sell-out body of work in their hometown of Liverpool.

Smock Alley Theatre, April 8th-11th
