Jenny Wren Productions is a Gloucestershire-based professional theatre company, formed in 2004. In the summer we can be found performing classic plays under the stars at open-air venues around the county, including Berkeley Castle, Cowley Manor and Highnam Court near Gloucester. The autumn usually takes us on another tour, often with a new play, to small theatres and rural venues. We have strong links with the Cheltenham Everyman Theatre and perform there regularly. We have toured schools, libraries and care homes with Theatre in Education projects, incorporating educational workshops, and in 2020, we adapted! We created radio drama and an online play - but we are looking forward to creating live shows again later in 2021 :)

The company comprises a pool of actors, musicians, designers, stage managers, producer and director. Many of our projects have been funded by Arts Council England and with others we have raised money for charities including the Pied Piper Appeal at Gloucester Hospital and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. And whilst doing all of this, we have a lot of fun!

A Midsummer Night's Dream

 


Jenny Wren Productions presents
Shakespeare’s

A Midsummer Night's Dream

The course of true love never did run smooth...

Jenny Wren Productions are thrilled to present Shakespeare's summertime classic, set in the roaring '20s.

Theseus and Hippolyta invite you to celebrate their wedding, alongside four lovers, some feisty fairies and an unlikely theatre troupe frolicking in a forest!

With luscious language, live music, laughs aplenty and a little touch of magic, join this small company of "rude mechanicals" for an enchanting summer's evening in an outdoor venue near you.

"A very good piece of work, I assure you, and a merry."
