Mid Wales’ only open-air theatre made of living willow is to broadcast a live online version of A Midsummer Night’s Stream on Saturday.

The Willow Globe Theatre at Penlanole, near Llandrindod Wells, will be empty but actors from The Wet Mariners will perform their parts at home to create an online production of the play.

The Wet Mariners is a company of professional actors which visits Mid Wales every summer to perform at the Willow Globe.

The company’s combined professional experience includes working with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre as well as roles in Harry Potter and His Dark Materials.

The performance will be free to view by booking via Shakespeare Link’s website www.shakespearelink.org.uk/productions. However, donations will be most welcome, with takings to be divided between the NHS and The Willow Globe.

The performance has already raised more than £600 for NHS charities.
