Bottom’s Dream (2009)

Who dreamt the Midsummer Night’s Dream? What were the reactions of the Artisans’ relatives to their play-acting activities? The author considers the play from the point of Bottom – and the women as members of the audience. Bottom and his wife are discovered settling down for the night-as twelve o’clock strikes, Bottom dreams a ‘most rare vision’. All the Artisan scenes are preserved intact – but here the women also have their say.
