The best thing about Shakespeare in the park is the set design. Director Anthony Harkin says: “A Midsummer Night’s Dream is perfect in Centennial Park, as there’s no need to imagine the woods or the night sky. They’re all around you. It’s immediate and visceral. We’re making a 400- year-old play relevant, not with sets and costumes, but with a brilliant cast and a fresh approach”. The brilliant cast belongs to a brand new Sydney-based theatre company, WildRumpus, who are negotiating an ongoing program with Centennial Parklands. The event is BYO food and drinks, so pack that picnic and enjoy summer Athenian style.
