The Pocket Dream / Elly Brewer, Sandi Tok

This uproarious comedy from Elly Brewer and Sandi Toksvig was first presented by the Nottingham Playhouse in 1991 and transferred to the Albery Theatre, London, in 1992.
"This is a farcical fantasia on A Midsummer Night’s Dream ... the audience laughed like mad most of the evening and were happy to help in the gags impressed on them from the stage. It’s like a springtime pantomime. " Financial Times

"Director Pip Broughton has loosed a Comedy Store team on Shakespeare’s jolly tale of star-crossed lovers, rude mechanicals and fey fairies, and they have come up with an adult pantomime that is part spoof, part revenge on their repertory apprenticeships ... The device allows them to combine Michael Frayn-style backstage tensions with casting the audience as extras... and some hilariously hammy coarse acting." Guardian

"The last act of A Midsummer Night’s Dream features a shambolic play-within-a-play, performed by hapless amateurs; The Pocket Dream, devised by Elly Brewer and Sandi Toksvig, improves on this by extending the in-jokey, farcical spirit of the "Pyramus and Thisbe" playlet over the whole of Shakespeare’s comedy ... A good way of introducing children to Shakespeare? Shakespeare without tears is often Shakespeare without Shakespeare ... but here it’s surprising how much of the spirit of the original survives all the filleting and mucking around." Independent
