Play in the park continue at Woburn Abbey

WOBURN Abbey continues to host plays in the park this weekend with the Chapterhouse Theatre Company’s production of Emma on Saturday night followed, a day later, by the idyllic retelling of the family story of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny.

Jane Austin’s Emma is a wonderful tale of matchmaking, marriage and merriment. Emma is a young woman determined to pair her friends off with their perfect matches. But could it be that amidst her plotting, her own true love has been there all along?

Quantum Theatre’s The Tales of Beatrix Potter is a perfect introduction for children to the theatre who will be transfixed by the magicalal production.

Next Saturday Chapterhouse returns with its memorable Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s best-loved romantic comedy, which whisks you away on a thrilling journey to the most magical of forests. Star-crossed lovers, playful fairies and raucous travelling players come together to create one of the most fun and frolicsome evenings of the summer.

The Saturday performances start at 7pm with the gates opening two hours earlier to allow picnickers to find a spot to enjoy the show. The Sunday performance is at 3pm with gates opening at 1pm. For tickets call 01525 290333.
