Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream - a magical comedy of enchanted woods and mischievous mayhem - including runaway lovers, beguiling potions and a rather unfortunate individual who gets turned into a donkey…

The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, travelling with set, props and costumes across the UK, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays. The Fools perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting - to date, they have performed at castles, cathedrals, historic houses, gardens, churches, market places, village greens, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a crowded pub and a garlic farm – all the world's a stage! You can’t miss this motley troupe at Lauriston Castle this summer.

Grounds open for picnics from 6pm
