AboutWhat 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.
