Tooting: urban, edgy - and now cultural hotspot! My 13 year old son stunned me by asking if I could take him to see a Shakespeare play he'd enjoy. Any requests, I asked? Yes, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Time Out's listing showed that there was an imminent production of said play in a few days on our doorstep. Being an SW17 resident I got my tickets for a mere £9 each and duly arrived - with a few misgivings that it would be up to scratch. Dear Reader - it was fantastic!! This production is everything Shakespeare would love: fun, frolicsome, saucy, hilariously funny, and hugely entertaining. The acting was superb (really, everyone was a star), costumes were inventive and witty, the set was amazing (we started off inside in a recreation of Tooting Common, complete with bits of rubbish!) then outside on bales of hay, then back inside for the final scene. The Thankyous on the programme told a story of community solidarity and support which made this Dream possible. Seriously, guys - thank you so much for an amazing night. My 11 and 13 year olds loved every minute and are now up for more Shakespeare. You can't get a better review than that...
