From the Daily Mail (where else?):

Sexy Sheridan to be David's Dream girl Always the comedian: David Walliams will star as Bottom in the famous Shakespeare play

Always the comedian: David Walliams will star as Bottom in the famous Shakespeare play

Sheridan Smith and David Walliams are set for the sexiest Dream ever.
The pair will appear in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with Sheridan playing Titania the Queen of the Fairies and David as Bottom in Shakespeare’s comedy about lovers finding the path to happiness in an enchanted forest.
Michael Grandage has picked the play as the fourth production of his 14-month tenancy at the Noel Coward theatre.
Grandage said he envisions the play’s disparate sets of star-crossed lovers fleeing a pent-up court for a place where the real and mythical worlds collide in sensual abandon.
‘Once in the forest there’s a kind of anarchic sexual freedom, and the casting of Sheridan and David helps me define that,’ says Grandage.
‘As Titania and Bottom they’re already in the forest, doing what they do. When I met Sheridan and David, I said: “Let’s make it a really, absolutely sexual production.” ’
As the play doesn’t begin performances until September 7 of next year, Grandage, his cast and designers Christopher Oram and Paule Constable have plenty of time to visualise the kind of lawless love-in he has in mind.
In any case, Sheridan knows the fairytale wood’s terrain well, having played lovestruck Hermia six years ago at the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park.
Since then, she has played the lead in Legally Blonde at the Savoy, though for me her great triumph was her exquisite study in heartbreak in Trevor Nunn’s celebrated revival of Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path at the Haymarket a couple of seasons back.
I also saw Sheridan in an early preview of ITV’s thriller The Scapegoat, due on TV in the autumn: she’s great as a frustrated wife in love with her brother-in-law. She shies away from nothing.
Walliams wants to beef up his stage CV following his dramatic debut in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land in 2008.
Grandage told me that when he and Walliams met, the actor produced a lively list of parts he wants to play and the Bard’s Bottom was prominently displayed on it.
‘It’s a great comic role,’ says Grandage.

    Really enjoyed this production despite David Walliams camping it up. We were treated to a trip through the decades with 40s dress, 60s music and even The Carpenters in the mix. All finished off with fire alarm at the end!

      If anyone buys a ticket to this performance on 13th November, please let me know and I'll add you to the group! We can meet beforehand and after. You won't be sat with us, but we can still mingle! Tickets are available here, at £55. http://www.atgtickets...­ Otherwise, let's wait to see what tickets Greg has found - there are some online at £35 plus booking fee, for certain evenings but I expect he'll have a specific date in mind and may have found cheaper.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
