The Leura Shakespeare Festival
*** Latest event details are yet to be confirmed ***
Sport For Jove's acclaimed outdoor theatre season returns for its 6th year in January 2015 with two works revered by audiences the world over - A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare and The Crucible, by Arthur Miller.
Arthur Miller's portrait of the ordinary evils latent in any society, of mindless, hysterical persecution through ignorance, fear of 'otherness' and our capacity to serve ourselves above all others make it one of the world's most transcendent and important stories, in any age. An extraordinarily rare experience for this great play, a site specific haunting on the grounds of the Everglades Garden in Leura.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is the ultimate expression of Shakespeare's theatrical mastery; In the heat of the shortest night of the year, young lovers and work-a-day dreamers plunge into a world between sleep and waking, where "everything seems double". One of Shakespeare's truly essential works.
