Four Forty Theatre are back with a British Summertime Shakespeare Double Bill! Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, both performed in one night by only four actors in forty (ish!) minutes each! “This is an exceptionally special, hilarious, speedy tour of two of Shakespeare’s arguably greatest plays!”

Experience the hilarity of two of the Bard’s best comedies condensed into short, side-splitting shows. In a mere 40 minutes each, they distill the essence of Shakespeare’s masterpieces into uproarious performances. “Their inimitable style and charisma definitely set them apart as one of the most playfully ambitious theatre groups around!”

Prepare for an unforgettable night of laughter and with a British Seaside Twist!
“Four Forty Theatre proves that there doesn’t need to be a high value production to provide high quality entertainment!” 2024 will see the company reach more people than ever before and they invite you to join them on their biggest tour to date!

Recommended age 7 and above.
