THE Courtyard Theatre in Hoxton has two productions lined up for the first part of October 2013.

Dealing with themes like life, death, love and religion in the vein of Woman in Black and Steven Berfoff, Behind the Garden Wall is an ensemble piece of theatre that aims to highlight how the Bronte sisters’ experiences were reflected in their work and how key events shaped their lives.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Main House) – October 1 to October 12.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a mad magical world where nothing is quite as it seems, has an original soundtrack, design and setting.
