Midsummer Night’s Dream

In the midst of a hot and hazy Brighton summer, Slurring Words Theatre Company have performed Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in the gardens at Stanmer House. This magical play was a joy to photograph the production stills for. The material and characters are accessible and sumptuous. The actors a pleasure to work with when documenting one evening before a dress rehearsal. Photographing around sunset delivers a soft, direct light which is magical, as long as you move quickly, the window for opportunity is brief. We made the most of the venue in the time we had: gardens, historic house, fields.

Tickets include a return bus ride on The Big Lemon from the Old Steine to Stanmer
