The theatre marathon kicks off with one of William Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, on Sunday, March 1, followed by Small Island on Monday, March 9.

The Small Island performance is based on the Orange Prize-winning novel by Andrea Levy and adapted by Helen Edmundson about a journey from Jamaica to Britain, during the Second World War to 1948, through three-intricately connected stories.

Then watch Irish actor Andrew Scott who plays actor Garry Essendine in Noel Coward’s comedy, Present Laughter, on Sunday, March 22.

The play follows Essendine’s colourful life as he prepares to embark on an overseas tour.

The final screening, on Monday, March 30, will be All My Sons by Arthur Miller and starring Academy Award-winner Sally Field and Bill Pullman as Joe and Kate Keller, who despite hard choices and even harder knocks, are a success story.
