Presented by Students of National Performing Academy’s Young Drama programme, this reimagining of William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ follows the story of Nick Bottom and how it came to be that he got turned into an ass!

A group of Athenian tradesmen are planning to perform a play in celebration of the Duke's wedding. Elsewhere in the forest, the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, argue over Titania's refusal to give up her page-boy to Oberon. He sends his servant Puck to find a magic plant to cast a spell on Titania.

Puck overhears the tradesmen rehearsing and magically transforms Bottom's head into that of an ass. The other men are terrified and flee the forest. When Titania wakes, the first creature she sees is Bottom and she falls rapturously in love with him.
