Midsummer dreams at Lyme

THE 2024 Lyme Regis community play will be A Midsummer Lyme’s Dream, a local reimagining of the favourite Shakespearean comedy, at the Marine Theatre from 12th to 15th June.

Locally based actor and writer Andrew Rattenbury, who has written the community plays for several years, has created an irreverent, modern-day blast through this enchanting comedy, interwoven with nuggets of Lyme’s history.

The magical charm of both the play and the town have been knitted together into a captivating new version of a much-loved classic, created by the community for the community!

This 2024 community play follows the previous award-winning and hugely successful productions, Monmouth: A West Country Rebellion, Are you Going to the Marine? and Lyme and the Sea.

The play is directed by Tessa Morton who has been running weekly rehearsals to bring the show to life with musical director Declan Duffy, and a large team of singers, musicians, actors and back-stage crew.
