It's high summer at the Ilyria holiday camp island; deckchairs and bunting, 99's and knobbly knee competitions are plentiful, only true love is hard to find. When a boat capsizes just off the coast, the arrival of the survivors causes no end of mayhem, mistaken identity, gender-swapping and cross-gartering...!

Join the Proteans for the sunniest of Shakespeare's romps as they return to the beautiful Walled Garden - transformed this year into a nostalgic holiday camp! As ever, their unique take on the Bard will include songs, slapstick and plenty of fun. For the ultimate outdoor summer theatrical experience - bring a picnic and immerse yourself in the sheer joy of Shakespeare's original rom-com!


The Proteans performance of Shakespeare within the walled garden is a much-loved Summer tradition in Basingstoke and now a firm fixture of the Basingstoke Festival calendar. The Proteans are a community theatre workshop company affiliated to Proteus Theatre Company. The group, made up of adults from North Hampshire area, access the diverse actors and artists working with Proteus and in turn create their own work under the banner of 'The Proteans'
