Sometimes the rain was so loud that they were unable to hear each other’s voices, according to co-directors Val Robinson and Pat McLoughlin.

Hopefully the weather will be kinder when the cast of Hathersage Players present the fruits of their labour to the public.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be staged indoors at the village’s memorial hall from June 22 to 24 art 7.30pm, then outdoors at Hathersage Hall gardens on June 26 and 27 at 1.30pm with an evening performance on June 27 at 7pm.
