DESCRIPTION

What if some of the greatest plays in history were borne of a bargain with the Lord of Dreams? 

This possibility is played out in Issue #19 of Neil Gaiman's graphic novel, The Sandman, as multiple worlds collide to witness William Shakespeare deliver the first performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. 

Taking this graphic retelling as its starting point, the Woodmill has assembled a group of some 20 artists, writers and curators to produce a collaborative project at CGP and the surrounding park. This accumulative exhibition will deliver a set of works formed by the group, drawing from their shared interests in the material, and augmented by a schedule of one-off outdoor events and performances taking place over the month of July 2013.
