A funny thing happened to me on the way to the theatre this evening. Shakespeare’s greatest clowns - the rude mechanicals from A Midsummer Night’s Dream - take centre stage in this wild reimagining of what might have happened off-stage during the Bard’s most loved comedy.

A funny thing happened to me on the way to the theatre this evening. Shakespeare’s greatest clowns - the rude mechanicals from A Midsummer Night’s Dream - take centre stage in this wild reimagining of what might have happened off-stage during the Bard’s most loved comedy.

Perhaps the most famous group of amateur thespians of all time, the cast of the play-within-a-play Pyramus and Thisbe, bumble their way through rehearsals, misadventures and sheer idiocy in an hysterically funny mix of verse, song and dance.

First directed by Geoffrey Rush in 1987, The Popular Mechanicals holds a special place in the Australian comedic canon and is ripe for revival with a cast of our best theatrical clowns.

A perfect romp that promises to lift the roof in the silliest ways imaginable.
