"A beautiful piece of magic!!"
Drama Studio London and Persever Productions had a wonderful time in Walpole Park during the bank holiday weekend for a glorious production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Local residents, friends, family and intrigued passers-by enjoyed twelve brilliant performances delivered by a cast of DSL’s current and recent graduates who combined with Persever Productions' established company of actors.
This exciting new collaboration enabled actors at differing stages of their careers to learn from each other and create an ensemble.
"This has proved a really successful collaboration. Audiences have loved the production and we have enjoyed engaging with our Ealing neighbours. We hope to be back next Summer in Walpole Park with another Shakespeare classic." Emma Lucia Hands, Director of Drama Studio London
"I've had the most fantastic time working with DSL graduates and students on A Midsummer Night's Dream. Bringing together actors at all stages in their careers is part of the mission of my company Persever Productions, and I hope this exciting collaboration with DSL will be just as successful in the future as it was this summer. The students learnt so much working with the professional actors - and vice versa ! It was a true ensemble! The play was so well received by the public and the thrill of seeing so many children engaging in Shakespeare was a real joy." Charlie Barker, Director
"I saw the production with my seven-year-old who came away saying ‘Shakespeare is brilliant!’"
