One of Shakespeare's most-loved plays will be performed at a north Norfolk church.

A Midsummer Night's Dream will be performed at St Margaret's in Thorpe Market by Sussex-based theatre company, Thisismytheatre.

The play's convoluted, but entertaining plot revolves around four young Athenians in search of their loves.

And when they take to the woods, Puck, a servant to the fairy king, places a spell on the wrong suitor, and chaos results.

In all of this, a company of actors meet to rehearse a play but the mischievous Puck once again interferes placing an asses head on the unfortunate Bottom, much to the horror of his friends.

The performance includes live, traditional folk music.

Tickets are £12.50 and £5 for under-16s, and bookings can be made online at www.thisismytheatre.comThe play takes place on Thursday, May 31, at 7.30pm. There will be a licenced bar and car parking is available.
