A Midsummer Night's Dream
By William Shakespeare
Adapted by Jan Gregory
Tuesday 8th - Saturday 12th May 2012
‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’
Lovers at odds. Amateur players engaged in secret rehearsals. Mischievous fairies. All in the wood one magical midsummer night!
Join us to celebrate our 200th production with a night of love and laughter.

It gives me great pleasure to
welcome you to The Hospital Players’ 200th
production. The Hospital Players,
Scunthorpe’s oldest drama group, was established in 1943 by the firewatchers
based at the hospital. Needing to keep themselves occupied during their duties they
began reading plays and eventually started performing. We are very proud and delighted
that our group continues to flourish, giving enjoyment both to our members and
to you, our audience, whom we thank for your continued support.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream was chosen as something ‘different’ to celebrate our 200th performance. I hope you enjoy this timeless classic as much as we have enjoyed taking part. Sit back, relax and enjoy our dream.
Jan Gregory, Director
