Northern Rep and The Great Northern Warehouse, are putting on a script in hand performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare this weekend, in aid of the Manchester Victim’s Fund, started by the Manchester Evening News following Monday night’s tragic events.

Each performance is limited to 150 people and in place of buying a ticket, Northern Rep is asking attendees to make a donation, no matter how big or small, 100% of which will be donated to the Manchester Victims Fund.

Thomas Moore, Director, Northern Rep, said: "Manchester has been devastated by the events of Monday night. It is at times like this where coming together to celebrate the ties that bind us is so important. This Bank Holiday Weekend we would love it if you could join us in remembrance and celebration of the lives of those we have lost, and those who were injured.”

Performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will run at Great Northern Warehouse on Friday 26 May at 7.30pm, Saturday 27th May at 2pm & 7.30pm, and Sunday 28th May at 2pm.
