Event description


Shakespeare Down the Pub - A Midsummer Night's Dream

In partnership with Typica Cafe in Manuka (formerly known as Ona) and Pop Inn Wine Bar, Lakespeare & Co. presents our fast and loose, immersive, no frills version of our 2020 summer show. This style was established in 2019 with Twelfth Night's Shakespeare Down the Pub.

This is Shakespeare unplugged. No costumes, no props. Lots of improvisation and audience interaction. Eat, drink and be merry as we run through our paces bringing language to places you wouldn't normally expect.

This will be as close as you can get to the original Shakespearean experience as you'll ever get!

Act I commences 7:00pm

Intermission approx 7:50pm

Act II commences 8:15pm

Kitchen closes 8:15pm **main food must be ordered by eventbrite

Conclusion 9:00pm

Tickets and Seating

It is possible to get show only tickets but please support our partners Typica and The Pop Inn by making a purchase. Your support for our vendors helps us bring new and exciting experiences to Canberra.

This show is ticketed with a small ticket price of $24.30 (all inclusive). Lakespeare & Co have a free season, known as Shakespeare by the Lakes but it is simply not possible to make everything we do free of charge.

We are an independent company dedicated to making great art accessible to Canberrans and supporting Canberran artists. This is not without cost. SBTL shows will always be free, and we complement them with ticketed, intimate performances which provide a different offering for Canberrans. SBTL is financially supported by sponsors and partners and our other productions like Shakespeare by the Vines and Shakespeare Down the Pub. And with less corporate support this year, we are reliant on them a little more than in previous times.

This is an exclusive one-off event with only 70 seats available. Please consider that you might have to share table space with other audience members. You will definitely have the actors in your space and sitting on your tables!
