queer finale"

Melmoth returns to Greenwich Playhouse, following its audaciously successful run of Two Gentlemen of Verona. Expect the usual mix of mistaken identities, cross-dressing, temperamental boy bands, outrageous frocks, love, and a bit with a donkey...

Helena is in love with Hermia - but Hermia's father wants her to marry Demetrius. To confuse matters more, Lysander is in love with Demetrius.

Oberon, the King of the Faries is in a strop with Titania: he's stolen an Indian boy and is refusing to share.

Local businessman, Bottom has joined an amdram group - and they have just two days to perform their definitive version of Romeo and Juliet.

Book now for the campest, funniest, most outrageous comedy this year!
