Have some fun with Shakespeare at last
My favourite experience on a recent trip to the NSW South Coast was a visit to the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens. Situated on 42 hectares of natural forest, just five kilometres south of Batemans Bay on the Princes Highway, the gardens specialise in the wide range of original plant species that occur in the region.
There are display gardens, walking tracks, picnic and barbeque facilities, a herbarium, information centre, and I was particularly interested in the Indigenous Garden Walk which explained the multiple uses of a variety of native plants.
On Saturday the 19th of January and again on Sunday the 20th of January, 2019, Essential Theatre will be performing Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, in the grounds of these beautiful gardens.
Not so sure about Shakespeare? Still shaking after having to undertake studies in high school?
On a Midsummer's night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites play and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their bumbling mates presenting a play within a play. Puck, the leading mischief-maker, is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is an outdoor picnic performance. Please bring your own blankets, food, wine and beverages. Coffee is available at the gardens. Insect repellent is advisable. The Gardens are a NO Bin Zone, so please take out all you bring in.
