In February 2016, Aldeburgh-based theatre company Wonderful Beast held a fundraising event to raise vital funds for its forthcoming festival, Storm of Stories.

Bottom’s Dream was a variety show inspired by Shakespeare’s fairy tales and audiences were delighted by comedy, fairy tales, Shakespeare, music hall, drag, sketches, songs, poems and ballet presented by a stellar cast and hosted by Iestyn Edwards as Madame Galina.

Alys Kihl, Artistic Director, said before the event: ‘I’m very excited about Bottom’s Dream, which will be an extraordinary performance featuring a wide range of talented and distinguished artists and I’m thrilled that they are supporting our cause: a family friendly festival with storytelling at its heart.’

The performance took place at Jubilee Hall. Find out more about the theatre company at Wonderful Beast.
